Welcome to Rural Reach!

We are very happy that you have come to our page and we hope you enjoy your time here.
Who are you guys?

Why Rural Reach

In a world filled with thousands of non-profit organizations, Rural Reach might seem like just another organization. The thing that sets us apart is that we go the extra mile (quite literally). We are committed to offering practical support to those individuals and communities who are so isolated that they are usually forgotten and overlooked by others. We do what we can to assist these people so that they may also have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
 
Whilst being focused and effective with our projects, we are also committed to remaining trustworthy and transparent. Rural Reach is registered with the South African Department of Social Development as a non-profit organization, as well as being registered as a public benefit organization with the South African Revenue Service (SARS). We also have a great board of directors who give guidance and direction to our organization.  Read more about us here.

What’s the big issue? 

The problem

Rural Reach is currently working alongside three small, rural schools called Lepelsfontein Primary, Buffelskloof Primary, and Klaasvoogds Primary in South Africa. Because these schools are quite small and isolated, they lack the resources that larger schools receive. Most of the families whose children are in the schools are either unemployed or have a very limited income. Work opportunities are scarce in these rural areas and alcoholism and drug abuse are an ever-present problem.
 
Many children come from broken homes and live with their grandparents or with a single parent. With little to no income for these families, many children don’t even have their basic needs met. The result is that they often fail to complete their school career which greatly inhibits future work opportunities.

What Are you doing about it?

Our Solution

We offer practical support to the communities we work in by meeting them where they are. This means we tailor all our projects to meet their specific needs in order to guarantee the greatest impact. We also ensure that all our projects are sustainable and that the funds are used appropriately.
We have a variety of projects, some completed and some ongoing. Some of our once-off projects include distributing much-needed winter clothing to communities; fixing the plumbing of a local primary school; assisting certain individuals to apply for university and much more. Read more about our completed projects here
Our flagship project is called Sponsor a Child. This project is aimed at supporting children from poor families in rural areas by ensuring that they have access to quality education and providing them with a food hamper each month. Read more about our Sponsor a Child project here.

Can i get involved?

How you can help

Rural Reach only operates due to the kindness and generous support of others. We cannot express our gratitude enough to those who have so graciously donated to our work. There is so much more we still hope to do.  

Your donation, big or small, will help us reach even further. It will enable us to reach not only more communities, but hopefully, sponsor more children and better assist our beneficiaries. We are constantly striving to improve our services and use these funds in the most effective way possible.

By giving a recurring donation, Rural Reach is even better prepared to plan in advance and ensure the longevity of its projects. As Rural Reach is a registered public benefit organization with the South African Revenue Service, we are able to provide tax-deductible receipts for every donation received (not applicable to all countries).
