$12,000 goal

Imagine wanting a better life for yourself and not being able to get the education to do so.

Africa Classroom Connection (ACC) raises funds in Minnesota to build schools in rural KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, where the effects of Apartheid and the continued lack of public funds leaves the kids in this area desperately underserved. 

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. 

Founded in 2006, ACC has helped 37,000 kids by building 109 classrooms so far. Sadly, more than 100 additional classrooms remain on the waiting list. We're going to build one at a time.

Please help us raise $12,000 to build one new classroom!

Classrooms are the heart of the community – some are also used at night for adult learning and some used as makeshift dormitories for girls in areas where the exceptionally long walk home can be dangerous. During the Covid-19 pandemic, communities are choosing to have students quarantine at school so their learning is not be disrupted. 

Education in this part of South Africa is not a given 

Africa Classroom Connection’s core principle of grassroots participation and co-investment guide the building of classrooms in South Africa. Communities are eager for education, raising financial deposits of about 3% (significant to them), leveling land, and securing water needed for construction. ACC funds the rest. Community investment means the residents respect and care for their school.

Rough cost for building a classroom:

Please help ACC unleash the potential of every child by providing them access to education opportunities. Our kids thrive with your support! Thank you!
