Help children to learn, grow and thrive!

Education is the key that unlocks childhood dreams, and helps us build fulfilling futures for ourselves and our families. But millions of children do not have access to the education which could help them achieve their dreams.

Put Education First; donate now to help children get the start in life they deserve.


Penny Appeal support a no-fee paying school, located in Primrose Park, where PA has provided 18 mobile classrooms. These classrooms form the basis of Grade 10 - 12 and offers students a safe, secure location to access quality education and thrive in building a better future.

One of the students performing exceptionally well at The Leadership College, residing in the Manenberg, Cape Town:

"I live with my parents, two brothers, my grandmother and my cousin. We live in a two bedroom home ,made out of bricks and mortar. Our main source of income comes from my father who plies his trade as a tailor and he works from home.

My future plans are to a pursue a career in either Actuarial Sciences which I would like to complete at the University of Witwatersrand or Engineering at the University of Stellenbosch. My dream is to make my family proud by completing my studies and the other dream is to become one of the top students in South Africa when I graduate.

Building and equipping classrooms We build classrooms where students can access quality education.

Every Child Deserves the Best Chance for a Brighter Future By providing school shoes, stationery and uniforms, students receive necessary resources to ensure their schooling experience is the best.

How Penny Appeal helped
the Leadership College

We provided 18 mobile classrooms to a school which provides quality education to marginalised and vulnerable groups. The school is presently catering for high school students, and is thriving.


258 million children around the world do not go to school, according to the UN.

Not only is this heart-breaking for the children at the time, it almost certainly traps them in poverty well into their adulthood. Education is a powerful key to ending poverty; UNESCO found that for every year that a country's average years of schooling increases, its long-term economic growth increases by 3.7%.

With Penny Appeal, you can invest in a child’s education and secure their future

Just R500 a month could provide an ongoing education for an underprivileged child.

The Prophet (saw) said:

“A father gives his child nothing better than a good education.”
