Who is behind ASSEX?

ASSEX was started by a South African (Noloyiso Catherine Mpati) who is a humanitarian at heart and passionate about seeing young people progress. She has been in the education industry for 6 years before starting ASSEX and her experience exposed her to the needs of many young people in South Africa. Her motto then became ‘He who opens a school door, closes a prison’ and decided to collaborate with individuals and organizations, to steer the youth of South Africa to a place of self-confidence, pride and knowledge.
