Help children to learn, grow and thrive!

Education is the key that unlocks childhood dreams, and helps us build fulfilling futures for ourselves and our families. But millions of children do not have access to the education which could help them achieve their dreams.

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, like one of the students performing exceptionally well at the school aspires to:

"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.”

258 million children around the world do not go to school, according to the UN.

Not only is this heart-breaking for the children at the time, it almost certainly traps them in poverty well into their adulthood. 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%.

With Penny Appeal, you can invest in a child’s education and secure their future.

Just $75 a month could provide an ongoing education for an underprivileged child.
The Prophet (SAW) said:
“A father gives his child nothing better than a good education.”
