Target demographics: deserving students living on the margins of society
Geographic areas served: KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa
Programs: We work with local communities to build much-needed classrooms, providing a safe and reliable place for students to learn. Without classrooms, students are either overcrowded in limited structures or taught under trees in harsh conditions and with few resources. During rainy seasons they are unable to learn at all. Since our founding in 2006, we have served more than 37,000 kids by building over 115 classrooms. ACC strives to unleash the potential of every child by providing access to educational opportunities. We build thriving communities by investing in the future leaders of South Africa.
This organization is phenomenal. Very little of the donations it receives goes to running it, instead it goes towards building classrooms. I can not recommend supporting this highly enough. My husband and I have contributed since its inception, and the students that it has affected are extraordinarily humble and grateful for the opportunity to have a classroom.
