Link Community Development

Improving the quality of education in Africa

2014 Christmas Appeal: 99 to 1

In the rural areas where we work, every classroom lacks vital resources. Even teachers are in short supply. Often in our schools there is just ONE qualified teacher per 99 students; in some cases there are over 150 students in a classroom. That's like a teacher in the UK or US teaching FOUR classrooms simultaneously.

Additionally, in some areas, high teacher absenteeism leads to students receiving almost 30 fewer days of instruction every year.
 
Link Community Development works to unlock local solutions to improve the quality of education. Learners in our districts obtain an average of 52% higher exam scores than other districts.
 
This December our goal is to support local communities to give 5,000 students the quality education they deserve.
 
 

Merry Christmas from everybody at Link Community Development
