Education

Education has the power to transform a child’s future, so every year we help millions of children go to school.

When children miss out on an education they’re at greater risk of being exploited. They are more likely to be trafficked, forced to work or get married young, and are less likely to earn enough to make a living, trapping them in a cycle of poverty. When children can read and write they can better advocate for their rights.

children are not in school, of which 53 per cent are girls
higher wages are earned with each additional year of schooling
youth worldwide lack basic literacy skills

With your support, we’re improving basic literacy, numeracy and providing essential life skills. We’re providing safe learning spaces for refugee children who wouldn’t otherwise have a chance to go to school. Together, we’re giving children a chance to write their own futures.
