At Schools For Africa we have 500+ children who come to learn at our schools every day. However, without properly trained and motivated teachers, students cannot receive quality lessons. As an organization run on charity donations, there is high risk of turnover due to the government funded schools paying a higher salary than Schools For Africa. The changing of a teacher is not only devastating to the student’s progress but also to the motivation of the rest of the staff. By sponsoring a teacher through Schools For Africa, you will not only be supporting the education of the children but also the development of the teacher.
If you chose to sponsor one of our 21 teachers, you will receive a photo and background of your teacher, a photo of the children in his or her class, information on the community where the school is located, and an update by the teacher every term. If you’d like to correspond with your teacher directly, please let us know!
You can sponsor a teacher by making a yearly, monthly, or one-time contribution. “Many hands make light work,” perhaps your work, church or school would like to come together and sponsor a teacher’s salary each year.
$1200 covers one teacher’s salary for an entire year – that’s only $100 a month.
