Catholic Institute of Education CIE Charity Profile
The Catholic Institute of Education is an NGO that delivers programmes to Catholic schools. The CIE Investment Company and Education Services were developed with a long term vision of ensuring sustainability for the NGO. The CIE is an associate body of the Southern African Catholic Bishops' Conference (SACBC) and has provided services to the network of Catholic schools since 1985 serving 352 schools, located throughout South Africa. CIE has always focused its work largely in rural and peri-urban schools, situated in the poorer, less developed parts of Southern Africa. 72% of Catholic schools in South Africa are public schools and there are over 6,000 teachers and 160,000 learners in these schools, who represent diverse cultures and religions, with Catholics forming the minority. The mission of the organisation is to serve and strengthen the Catholic education network so as to enable Catholic schools to offer values-based, quality education to learners in an environment that is conducive to their physical, emotional, moral, intellectual and spiritual development as national and global citizens.
