African Angels seeks, receives and allocates sponsorship for the education of orphaned and vulnerable children living in rural areas of the Eastern Cape, South Africa taking a unique partnership approach with parents.
We believe that the most effective way to drive positive change in South Africa, is to ensure children receive a good quality and continuous education in Africa, from pre-school to matriculation. In most cases with families living in informal settlements or ‘townships’, this cannot be achieved without additional financial aid from sponsors.
We partner with parents and carers in education. Parents/carers must contribute a nominal fee each month, and more importantly must ensure their child arrives for school each day, is picked up on time, and has a packed lunch. School fees are covered by the sponsor. Unlike other organizations, a minimum 95% of sponsor’s contributions are used to pay for school fees, with the African Angels organization fund raising to pay for running costs such as domain hosting and administration fees.
We have 29 children sponsored and attending good quality schools, and more on our list to be sponsored.
Our Angel Bus is in its first year of transporting Angels to and from school and we always welcome donations to keep it on the road!
Our Homework Club is in its infancy and will be taking off in 2010.
Our uuMama Club is a support and empowerment group for our Angels' Mums. They're a sensational group of women.
