Summary

Sponsor a child's education at African Angels so they can give back to South Africa. 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.

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. To make sure poorer parents can access quality education, we are seeking sponsors of individual angels to cover education, transport, nutrition and stationery needs.

Long-Term Impact

You'll see your Angel progress through African Angels and be updated along the way via email with regular updates and pictures. . With the foundation they receive with us we will see children who can succeed at high school, and access tertiary opportunities, and, in turn, get jobs, support their family, growing into good South African citizens. We don't just educate children, we grow good citizens.
