SASCO is the biggest student movement in Africa. It organizes students in institutions of higher learning striving for the transformation of not just institutions of higher learning but the whole system in order to achieve a non-sexist, non-racial, working class biased and democratic education system. It seeks to ensure the destruction of capitalist relations of production and the ushering of a socialist society.
It champions the interests of students and seeks to ensure access and success in these institutions, by fighting for (1) more and better accommodation, (2) more computer labs, (3) more and better-equipped libraries, (4) lower costs of education etc. SASCO achieves seeks to achieve these through mobilizing the broadest sections of students and rallying them behind the call for FREE HIGHER EDUCATION.
