Who We Are

So They Can is a not for profit organisation committed to empowering children living in poverty through education.

...because every child matters.

Our Mission.

263 million children are not in school worldwide. Education is the key to breaking the poverty cycle. 

Our mission is to work with local communities and governments to provide quality education to children living in poverty in communities in Africa.

We will achieve this through improved learning conditions, teacher training and development, child well being, women’s empowerment and community engagement and health.

Why Education?

The United Nations’ Global Goals for Sustainable Development aim to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and protect our planet by 2030.

To do this, children need to receive a quality education. “Obtaining a quality education is the foundation to improving people’s lives and sustainable development.” www.un.org

UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 4

“Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all."

As stated by the United Nations, the reasons for lack of quality education are due to lack of adequately trained teachers, poor conditions of schools and equity issues related to opportunities provided to rural children.

We are all about goal number 4 and addressing these inadequacies and inequalities. We believe education changes everything and without it, there is no hope for a poverty-free world.
