In Africa, there are simply not enough affordable, quality secondary schools, especially in rural areas. PEAS uses the funding to build schools in areas where, each year, hundreds of children complete primary school but have no secondary school available to them. We want all students in our schools to be safe, happy and learning. We empower our school leaders and teachers to deliver great outcomes for students by providing them with ongoing support and mentorship. We’re proud that PEAS schools consistently outperform national norms, in terms of both education quality and broadening access.
