> Open a School

School closures have devastating consequences for children’s learning and well-being. Vulnerable children are being forced into child labour or even marriage.

UNESCO reports more than 800 million children worldwide continue to face disruptions to their education due to full or partial school closures.

Children worldwide – especially within impoverished communities - see school as a safe-haven, a place where they can interact with their peers, seek support, access health and immunization services and a nutritious meal. The longer schools remain closed within their region, the longer children are cut off from these critical elements of childhood.

Schooling is an integral part of every child’s development and plays a vital role in poverty reduction, which is why we are opening schools in areas where there are none. The education of many children in rural areas is challenged by long and dangerous journeys to and from school. Furthermore, the buildings are in poor condition, the quality of education is low and there is a lack of water and latrine facilities. According to the education inequality index 31% of children in rural areas are out of school.

Supporting the opening of schools within impoverished communities will benefit thousands of deserving children. Future generations will prosper due to your generosity.
