The Dr. Bettye Bouey-Yates Educational Foundation is a non-profit organization incorporated in Washington, D.C., and designated as a §501(c)(3) under the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. The Foundation exists to enrich the quality of education of the children of Christianenburg Public Primary School, which is located in the township of Clermont, province of KwaZulu-Natal, outside the city of Durban, South Africa, and to provide support to neighboring schools as resources permit. Public schools in South Africa are faced with many obstacles as they struggle to provide children a quality education with less than sufficient resources. Unemployment is very high and many families cannot pay the required school fees or purchase the required books and materials. Many children are orphans and some live a long distance from school and cannot afford or secure transportation to and from school. Teachers and administrators lack supplies and equipment that support educational attainment and good school administration. The Foundation strives to work with the administrators and teachers to identify the school's educational challenges and provide the resources that will enable them to meet their educational objectives for the children.
