100FOR100

The “100for100” 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.

 

WHY A MONTHLY GIFT?

The challenges Philippi’s students face don’t start and stop at the schoolhouse gates. It’s vital that Amandla is able to work with them year-round so that no one falls through the cracks.
