Due to the high number of approved projects waiting for donors no new applications are being accepted at this time
Please note the following information on Classrooms for Africa's mandate:
- Classrooms for Africa is aimed specifically at providing basic classroom space in needy communities. Schools/organizations that wish to go beyond providing basic classroom space are of course free to do so but at their expense.
- Classrooms for Africa's policy is that a usable classroom must be provided through a grant. If funds in addition to Classrooms for Africa's grant are needed, then the school needs to clearly show that the funds are on hand or available.
- Classrooms for Africa only takes on small, manageable projects or a portion of a larger project that can be completed to the point at which it can be occupied.
- Classrooms for Africa has a responsibility to its donors to make sure a grant will result in providing usable classroom space.
- Classrooms for Africa's only source of funds is its donors. Any qualifying application needs to be promoted by Classrooms for Africa to its donors. It can take a while for a donor to be found for any given project. For this reason, the time period between submitting an application and being funded will vary. In addition, there is no guarantee that a project will eventually be funded if no donor comes forward.
