Because of DKG's support and the support of others, Schools for Africa benefits 5 million children by increasing access to education in 13 of Africa's neediest countries: Angola, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Guinea-Bissau, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Niger, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Africa, and Zimbabwe.
Schools for Africa is building and rehabilitating nearly 1,000 schools, training almost 100,000 teachers, providing school supplies, and ensuring that schools have safe drinking water, as well as separate bathrooms for boys and girls.
With DKG's help, Schools for Africa is creating schools that serve as a protective environment for the children who need it most, with a special emphasis on girls, orphans, and children living in extreme poverty. More information on the Schools for Africa program may be found at www.schoolsforafrica.com.
Previous UNICEF partnerships with DKG have focused on education and literacy in Central America, Gambia and Afghanistan. DKG raised over $200,000 to support UNICEF's education programming in Afghanistan, which has dramatically increased enrollment in a country where decades have conflict have had a severe impact on security, infrastructure and school attendance rates, particularly for girls.
