The “100 for 100” program is about ensuring that Philippi’s students have the support they need to stay in school. We’re aiming for 100% of students in our community!
THE TASK IS HUGE – BUT NOT IMPOSSIBLE
• Like many poor communities in South Africa, Philippi has a school dropout rate of over 50%
• For every 10 students who enter the system in Philippi, only 2 will qualify for university
• Youth unemployment is over 70%
It’s no wonder many students struggle just to get to school, only to lose hope and drop out.
Amandla Development works to empower South African youth with equal access to quality education opportunities. We do this by building capacity in effective grassroots organizations working in education, in order to maximize their impact.
