Imam Abdullah Haron Education Trust Bursary

About Imam Abdullah Haron Education Trust

IAHET or the Imam Abdullah Haron Education Trust was established in September 2005 in honour of the late Imam Haron’s idea of marginalized groups and individuals empowerment through education. The main goal of the IAHET is to help these people by granting financial assistance for early childhood development, bursary programme and mathematics and science tuition. Early childhood development provides quality nutrition as well as skills development to children.

The bursary programme is given to deserving individuals who are studying or wish to pursue their tertiary education. Mathematics and Science tuition supports matric students at Steenberg, Joe Slovo and Spine Road High Schools to advance their academic skills.

Since the programme was launched in 2006, the IAHET has allocated bursaries totaling over R2.7 million to 385 students.
