This dire situation already compounds the fate of the most vulnerable in the country. 50% of young people live below the poverty line. South Africa has the 6th highest unemployment rate in the world. It ranks 137th out of 139 countries on quality of public education and last in quality of mathematics and science education. South Africa has the highest population of people living with AIDS in the world at 7.1 million.
Even Ground strives to help families and communities break the cycles of poverty and inequality by providing support to community-based programs that offer high-quality education and care to young people in Africa.
Through an investment portfolio approach, we provide financial resources, management services, opportunities for cross project collaboration, assistance with securing additional sources of funding, and pathways for capacity building.
On average, our programs have increased service coverage by over 50% within the first years of working with Even Ground.
Every dollar counts. 100% of external donations go to our programs.
With a donation of at least $50, you’ll receive an invitation to discuss innovation and international economic development with New York Times Columnist Nicholas Kristof. This will occur as a teleconference accessible via Zoom on November 10th at 6:30-7:15PM EST.
You qualify for the benefit provided at the amount you donate, as well as those for lower amounts.
