Help children to learn, grow and thrive!
Education is a powerful key to ending poverty; UNESCO found that for every year that a country’s average years of schooling increases, its long-term economic growth increases by 3.7%.
Penny Appeal supports a no-fee paying school with 18 mobile classrooms, located in Cape Town, South Africa. The classrooms offer students a safe, secure location to access quality education and thrive in building a better future.
“I live with my parents, two brothers, my grandmother and my cousin. We live in a two-bedroom home. Our main source of income comes from my father who works from home as a tailor. My plan is to pursue my studies in Actuarial Sciences at the University of Witwatersrand or Engineering at the University of Stellenbosch. My dream is to make my family proud by completing my studies and the other dream is to become one of the top students in South Africa when I graduate.”
