The construction of a secondary school by PEAS in the Northern Province is a strength for today and a brighter hope for the future. The school will bring hope to thousands of our children in this part of the country and through education they will be able to gain knowledge to transform their lives in the years to come.
— Jobbicks Kalumba - Permanent Secretary – Northern Province, Zambia – about the new PEAS Kampinda school, opened in January 2018
Investments in low-fee private schools should only be made on an exceptional basis, where there is clear evidence that the school’s target children would otherwise not be able to receive education in a government school - for example the very impressive PEAS schools which target marginalised, rural girls in Uganda.
— Stephen Twigg - Chair of the International Development Select Committee, 2017
What struck me about PEAS is the clever thinking behind the charity and the innovative SmartAid model that it is built on. PEAS schools not only meet an urgent demand for secondary schooling, but as the model is focused on sustainability, once a school place is created it will continue to benefit the community for generations. In contrast to other charities that rely on UK funding to operate, PEAS schools cover their running costs through local revenues, securing their long term future.
— Jeremy Paxman - Journalist and Broadcaster and PEAS Ambassador, 2014
When female secondary school enrolment in some sub-Saharan countries is as low as seven per cent, PEAS’ target of ensuring that at least half of its students are girls is vital. This is life changing work.
