Help me support educational opportunities for children in South Africa
Everyone should be given the opportunity to learn!
Long After Apartheid, Inequality Lingers
Long after the end of apartheid, South Africa remains a country with deep inequalities. More than half of the country lives below the national poverty line, and one in four people suffers hunger on a regular basis. Poverty is heavily centered in black communities.
With all this considered, one thing remains clear: The people of South Africa are resilient and, with the support of donors like you, families in need there can access opportunities to break the chains of poverty and move toward success.
We Need YOUR Help
As much as we’ve been able to accomplish, there is still so much more to do. If we work together—with YOU—we can make the vision of better South Africa a reality for so many more of our sisters and brothers in need.
$100 can provide food aid for a family
$225 can provide vital relief to emergency survivors
$500 can open education access for children in need
$1,000 can help build innovative water and sanitation facilities
Islamic Relief opened an office in South Africa in 2003, and has overseen education and health programs geared towards alleviating poverty in the region, providing education support to children, and helping children affected by HIV and AIDS.
