> Give the gift of education with our back to school campaign!
For many of us, back to school simply means that the holidays are sadly coming to an end and we have to prepare our little ones for the adventure of the year ahead. But for children living in poverty (or caught in ongoing conflict), it means so much more especially now during a global pandemic.
As you may be aware the COVID-19 pandemic has had a severe effect on the global education system. Many places, especially in Pakistan don’t have the same resources or infrastructure as we do in the west. For children living in poverty-stricken communities around the world, it’s been truly devastating, because the little they had has been taken away.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, READ Foundation has been working hard to ensure that all our students benefit from education, safely during these testing times. So not only do our schools provide an education, they provide access to regular welfare checks, improved nutrition, and psychosocial support from the relevant staff there. For orphaned and vulnerable children, school is the road to stability, a safe environment, and an incredible chance at a brighter future.
However, simply re-opening schools is not enough. Many children living in poverty don’t have the means to go to school or the tools to support them once they’re there. They will need support to help them catch-up and re-adjust to an education system that must recover. Help them now .

By helping us provide these children with a back to school kit, you’re helping us ensure that they have the basics they need to receive a valuable education. From stationary, school bags, to school materials, these essential supplies help us bring learning to some of the world’s poorest children.
As you begin to help your children prepare to start a new school year, honour them by providing another child in need so with a back to school pack, so that they too can have a fair chance at a brighter future.
