Help children live Happily Ever Smarter
Globally, one in every six children are still missing out on the opportunity to go to school. For these children, the future looks bleak. Out-of-school children are more likely to be exploited for child labour and young girls are vulnerable to being forced into marriage.
For children from the poorest and most marginalised communities across Asia, where we work, the opportunity to get the education they need to escape the poverty cycle can feel like an impossible fairytale. For those living in the most remote communities - especially girls - there is a real education crisis. Covid-19 is exacerbating this crisis, making it even harder to reach these children.
But together, we can change this story. Through building schools and investing in local communities, we are giving thousands of primary-school-age children the chance to go to school for the first time in their lives. We train local teachers, empower students and parents and partner with regional and national governments to make sure children can go to school and learn.
We provide ongoing support until every school is self-sustaining and we are confident in the local authority’s ability to maintain it - meaning that each school will continue to provide an education for generations to come. Our low-cost, sustainable model of education transforms lives forever - and thanks to the UK government, you can make double the difference by donating before 29th July 2021!
Just £10 could educate a child like Kanchi for a month... and doubled, we could educate two children!
