Welcome to ADET

Growing up on the family farm amongst the ancient hills of the Cradle of Humankind, a young Timothy Nash was intrigued by the remnants of the past that marked his playground. As he grew into adulthood, so his interests grew and his explorations spread across the globe. Returning to South Africa, Timothy had a clear vision of what was needed to succeed in a digital society. He also saw that the most effective and innovative education programs didn’t reach those most in need.

In order for our Rainbow Nation to shine, he considered that it was the moral responsibility of those more fortunate, like himself, to extend the advantages some take for granted in order to build a better future for all.

By combining a conviction that STEM (Science / Technology / Engineering / Mathematics) skills and English literacy are essential to succeed in today’s working environment, Tim conceived what has now grown into the African Digital Education Trust (ADET). Registered in 2015 with 33 children, this not-for-profit organisation encompasses a host of charitable projects managed from the ADET campus in the historic township of Westbury, Johannesburg.
