Summary

Poor rural children are behind the proverbial eight ball in South Africa today. 63% of youth are unemployed. Children without resources are relegated to substandard education. Poor education means a reduced chance or no chance of future employment, and so the cycle of poverty continues. Since 2012 African Angels has provided quality primary school education for poor rural South African children. Invest in this project and you are investing in nation building through education.

Challenge

Children who are poor in South Africa can only access the State school system, which in most instances is under resourced, over crowded, has high teacher absenteeism and teachers who struggle to understand the curriculum they are teaching. This means children fail to get a solid basic foundation education and their future educational, and employment prospects are severely limited. With a 63% youth unemployment rate a fundamental and urgent change in access to quality schooling is needed.

Solution

Since 2012 African Angels has provided a quality primary school education for some of the poorest children in South Africa, partnering with parents. The educational foundation these children are receiving means they can succeed at high school and university. All the children attending the school come from very poor backgrounds. This is their one chance To fight their way out of poverty and secure employment - through education. Join us in building a nation through education.

Long-Term Impact

Every year we will see up to 20 poor and disadvantaged children graduate into high school from African Angels. Children who can succeed at high school, and access university opportunities. Children who can, in turn, get jobs, support their family, growing into good South African citizens. By the year 2020 we expect to see over 41% of families from our local community have a child attending African Angels. This means we will see an entire community change - through education.
