Africa Classroom Connection

Builds and improves South African schools serving children—40 percent are AIDS orphans—ages five to 21. Provides programs and emergency funds to help students stay in school.

Africa Classroom Connection builds and improves schools in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, so every child in this region, which has a 50 percent AIDS infection rate, has the opportunity for an excellent education. We work with our South African partners at the Eshowe Community Action Group to ensure that our school projects are appropriate and effective.

ACC_constructionOur model engages the local community which raises 10 percent–$1,400–of the overall cost of each classroom. The remaining 90 percent, or $12,500 per classroom, is paid through partner organizations like us. Each classroom serves 50 children, year after year.

Africa Classroom Connections also leads regular “Learning Tours” to South Africa and supports a small Stay in School Fund to help students with unexpected expenses that impede continuing in school.

Africa Classroom Connection’s board of directors covers all administrative expenses, which ensures that 100 percent of donations support our work in South Africa, allowing us to help the maximum number of students possible.
