PEAS (Promoting Equality in African Schools) supports children to access quality secondary education.
For millions of children across Africa, the end of primary school is the end of their education. Too few secondary schools exist, and those that do charge unaffordable fees. As a result, just 1 in 3 African children access secondary school. Even when they do, in many cases weak school management and ineffective teaching mean they often don't reach their potential.
And yet secondary education is completely life changing for young people. Each additional year of secondary education adds 13% to a person’s lifetime earnings - that's enough to take a family out of poverty. Today, 72 million African children are missing out on secondary education, and the chance to change their lives.
PEAS’s growing network of secondary schools transforms lives by providing high-quality secondary education to children who would otherwise struggle to go to school. Working in some of Uganda and Zambia’s most underserved areas, they also share what they know with others so that their impact stretches way beyond their own communities.
