With the support of VOX Cinemas, Penny Appeal is proud to present multi-award winning Comedian, Paul Chowdhry’s first ever exclusive show ‘Comedy-4-a-Cause’ in DUBAI.

Date: 26th and 27th January 2020 at VOX Cineplex Grand Hyatt 

The shows are being held in aid of Penny Appeal’s South Africa Education Program.

Comedy-4-A-Cause is raising funds for Penny Appeal’s ‘Back to School’ project in South Africa. The project will provide students from impoverished communities with essential learning resources that will help enhance both their learning experience and academic performance. The project is designed to restore dignity and confidence in learners, focusing on controllable aspects of a child educational experience. The learning experience of many South African children is far from positive as they face a number of obstacles such as limited funds and resources resulting in poor academic performance, high rates of school dropouts and absenteeism. Through this project, over 850 children will receive greater access to educational resources and equipment including school uniforms, school shoes and hygiene packs.
