Donate to KHULA Education– a David Rattray Education Initiative

Without your generosity we wouldn’t be able to operate. At any one time around 5,500 kids enrolled in our schools depend on us to give them the opportunities that many of us take for granted, but which they could barely dream of without intervention.

In such rural, isolated communities many challenges face the children at our schools. They travel vast distances to get to school, balance chores at home around school work and then struggle to complete homework by kerosene lamp or candle after dark. But despite all of this they show resilience.

It is quite evident that the children have the drive and ambition to go as far as their education can take them. They just need the opportunity, that spark… and that’s where you come in. You can make the difference.

A heartfelt thank you for whatever generous donation you can make.
