Rural education remains under-resourced despite efforts made since South Africa's transition to democracy. Without quality education, young people from humble homes in rural areas cannot access knowledge and social capital required to create value in their communities.
Raise the Children International (RTC) empowers rural South African orphans through quality education to become thriving servant-leaders poised to transform their communities and country. We venture far to find young people with promise. We knock, and open a door of opportunity for them.
Since 2012, Raise the Children has assisted more than 150 rural orphans to access quality education. We are rapidly growing and hope to support 100 Scholars a year by 2025.
