Aims & activities

PEAS founds and manages sustainably financed secondary schools in Africa in response to massive excess demand for affordable secondary education. We fundraise in the UK for capital costs. Schools fund running costs from a mixture of very low-fees, income generating projects and government subsidy. As of 2016, we run 30 schools.
