African children are the future of the continent. Their education is key to future economic growth and lasting democracy, leading to greater stability and improved standards of living. The current state of education in Africa, however, is plagued by a lack of funds, teachers, textbooks, and equipment.

Primary school enrolments and literacy rates in Africa are among the lowest in the world with 42 million school children in sub-Saharan Africa not enrolled in school. Many children cannot afford to go or stay in primary school.

By giving a desk and chair to a school in Africa through Oxfam, you can help turn any space into a proper classroom. It’s full marks for this gift! Hands up – who wants one?
