Get Smart Education is proud to partner with Groundswell Aid which is affiliated with Christian Surfers International. The mission of Groundswell Aid is to harness the resources of the surfing community to impact the global community.
We sponsor Groundswell Aid projects all around the globe from the islands of Mauritius and Indonesia to the coastlines of Chile and South Africa. These projects are asset based community developments with the local contacts driving the way we support them. This includes service trips, providing surfing equipment and financial assistance, education, promoting locally made goods and helping create a sustainable community based surfing tourism industry.
In addition Get Smart Education has set up a University Education Scholarship aligned with Alephsurf in Jeffrey’s Bay South Africa. We are currently sponsoring Tsungi (see right) to study Civil Engineering at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth South Africa.
Tsungi has had quite a difficult childhood losing both her parents at a very young age. She chose civil engineering because she wants to make a difference to her community by improving roads and water supplies.
