Education empowers kids in rural Kwa-Zulu Natal to be more successful and self-sufficient, to have influence and be heard. But if you have to go to class outdoors in the cold or rain for lack of a building, it's difficult to get a real education.
Join us for ACC's annual South African Freedom Day celebration (which commemorates the anniversary of the first free elections in 1994) to help give more kids a classroom, an education, and a voice. We'll serve light food and South African wines, and beautiful hand-crafted items will be available for purchase in our African Marketplace.

It's summer in South Africa! Two more classrooms are under construction at Ngqekwane Primary School near Melmoth, South Africa. They will soon say “Minneapolis Rotary #9” above the doors. That’s about 100 kids indoors for school this year and next year and every year for generations. Thanks to the Rotary Club of Minneapolis and our matching donors!
Africa Classroom Connection holds a vision that every child in KwaZulu Natal has the opportunity for an excellent education.
