What does a gift card support? 

One of our gift cards will fund everything a child needs to succeed, including: 

  • Resources to help children learn, including stationery, textbooks and interactive learning resources 
  • Libraries full of inspiring books to help children develop a love of literacy
  • Local teachers, trained to provide a high-quality education
  • Clean water and bathrooms, ensuring children are fit and healthy to learn

A basic education will bring opportunity for decades to come. Education improves health and reduces disease. Education helps to ensure the safety of girls and the survival of infants. Education equals the growth of an economy, the development of a country and the future of its communities.

Give the life-changing gift of education


This Christmas, make a child’s wishes come true with the gift of education. 

A child like Somrey. Somrey and her brother Komrey are from rural Cambodia. They have never been to school, as they live a long journey away from government schools. When we spoke to them, they told us that they wanted to have study materials, pens and books. They want to play volleyball, football and hopscotch. They wanted to have friends to share books with and tell them funny stories. They wished that they could go to school.

Instead, they spend their day cleaning the house, cooking, collecting water and chopping wood. They spoke openly, honestly and with a maturity beyond their years about their life, telling us that without schooling they would not be able to read, write, or have the power to change their lives. However, they also spoke with hope and excitement about the chance to read books, to learn Khmer, to find out how to add and subtract. Komrey told us, ‘If I go to school my life will be better.'

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we have now started building a school in Komrey and Somrey’s rural village in Cambodia. Soon they will set foot in a classroom for the very first time.
