Team story

[p][b]VISION & AIMS: [/b]Soul Action imagines an equal and integrated South Africa, that starts with quality and inclusive education in a school that is affordable for 3 to 18 year olds from a range of socio-economic backgrounds.[/p][p][b]WHY WE NEED A 'GAME-CHANGER': [/b]almost 30 yrs after Apartheid, South Africa remains the most consistently unequal country in the world - white South African's earn 5 times more than their black 'neighbours'. The majority of children, ‘attend overcrowded, under-resourced schools with poor infrastructure' - where teachers only teach for 3.5hrs a day, compared to 6.5hrs where families can afford government 'fee-paying' schools or private education. Which means, ‘if you’ve got more money, you have a better education.’ Which is why, ‘South Africa has the most unequal school system in the world.' Which is why, we need a 'game-changer'![/p][p][b]JOIN US: [/b]partner with [i]Soul Action [/i]and [i]Access Media[/i] to help raise the funds required to purchase land and the initial school buildings, and help make the dream of quality, inclusive and affordable education a reality for South Africa’s children[/p][p]“A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead[/p][p][br][/p][vmgvideo class="ql-video" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/9ITBzF4pN4o?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true"][/vmgvideo][p][br][/p]
