The Zenex Foundation was born out of the vision of its parent company Esso Oil, later known as Zenex Oil. Esso Oil disinvested from South Africa in 1987. The proceeds of the sale led to the creation of an endowment fund registered in Jersey, UK as the Zenex 1995 Trust. This Trust set up the Zenex Foundation in South Africa as an independent donor organisation that focuses on education. It is funded from the interest generated from investments made in the endowment fund. The Zenex Foundation is an independent grant-maker investing in mathematics and language education in South Africa since 1995. The Foundation’s strategic focus is driven by a deep belief in the proven relationship between language proficiency and success in mathematics and overall learner performance. The foundation’s goal is to improve teaching and learning outcomes in mathematics and language. Over the past 25 years, the Zenex Foundation has disbursed almost R1 billion in the South African education sector. The impact of this expenditure has been evaluated through extensive research and enquiry, and important lessons have been learnt about how donors can support the improvement of learner performance at school level.
