Schools for Africa Transforming Lives Through Education

Every Child Deserves a Quality Education In sub-Saharan Africa, one-third of all children are deprived of the chance to go to school. They miss out because of inadequate school facilities and poor teacher training. In addition, many schools lack gender- separate sanitation facilities, often causing adolescent girls to stay home. Poverty also forces children to drop out of school early to help support their families.

Schools for Africa is a partnership among UNICEF, the Foundation, and the Hamburg Society that is helping more and more girls and boys get a quality education. By providing funds to support this critical program, The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International — a professional organization of women educators and a longstanding U.S. Fund for UNICEF partner — is helping to secure a brighter future for Africa’s children. making a difference With Support from The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International and Others, the Schools for Africa Program Is…

a new school gives children a safe, dry place to learn In Zimbabwe, Agnes Mutima has been caring for her six grandchildren since their mothers died. She’s eager for the children to get a good education — and that includes having a safe, dry place to learn. “These are our children and they need a good environment to study in,” says Ms. Mutima. She was thrilled when UNICEF’s Schools for Africa program came to her village to build a new school. “When it rained, these children were rained on — when it was cold, they were very cold. This will now change, and they will have a proper primary education.”
