James Urdang has been described as a Social Entrepreneur and humanitarian of note. As CEO and Founder of Education Africa, he has dedicated more than 28 years of his life to a cause that is very close to his heart - helping to bring about real, positive and meaningful change to the lives of disadvantaged Africans.

James was mentored by the late Walter Sisulu and was honoured to have been asked to speak at the funeral of the late Chris Hani. James was the first person in the non-profit sector to lead President Nelson Mandela and had the honour of presenting him the Golden Doves of Peace Award.

Those who work with James are extremely motivated by his will to succeed and his willingness to make personal sacrifices to do just that, for the betterment of others. He is a true example of an Africanist who strongly believes that it’s Africa’s time.
