South Africa suffers from high levels of unemployment among its youth. The main cause is an inefficient educational system, an inheritance left by the apartheid.
Thanks to the contributions collected, since 2002 we have carried out more than 75 projects focused on the education and training of people in over 20 countries of sub-Saharan Africa.
South Africa. Making Pre-school and Elementary School Possible for Marginalized Children in Pretoria – South Africa
The objective of the project is to allow marginalized children in Atteridgeville, Pretoria entrance into St. Anne’s Primary School and to involve young university volunteers in the initiative.
The project targeted the education of women, both young and adult. This is an essential part of tackling the most urgent problems of the area (dropouts from school, prostitution, unemployment, HIV-AIDS, high divorce rate).
