> Build a school
Education is not only an integral part in a child’s development, it is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty. The biggest obstacle to learning is the inability to attend school and yet, more than 260 million children worldwide did not attend school in 2016.
This is why we’re giving YOU the opportunity to secure a child’s future by investing in their schooling.
Our promise is that we are constantly working towards securing the future for thousands of vulnerable children around the world by building new schools but, we can’t do it without you.
