Estimates currently suggest there are at least 263 million children around the world who are not in any kind of education. That is roughly 61 million primary school children, 60 million lower secondary school children and 142 million upper secondary school children who are missing out on the fundamental right to education.
A lack of education significantly reduces the future prospect of each child as they simply do not have the qualification or knowledge to better their position.
Alongside that however they also miss out on creating lasting social connections and basic skills that we take for granted.
In many places, the schools that are there exist without boundary walls, bathrooms, drinking water or even classroom furniture. The children that do attend are forced to study in open places that are often dangerous; resulting in parents not wanting their children to go.
Our ‘Adopt A School’ project helps fill the gap by providing the missing facilities many of these schools need.
Every donation you make, no matter how big or small, will ensure each school has proper walls and classrooms as well as safe drinking water, washrooms and desks.
Your donations are helping to renovate and rebuild public schools and madrassahs in impoverished communities, helping children access quality education.
In 2022, we rehabilitated four schools in Pakistan, one school in Kenya and built seven Islamic schools (madrassahs) in Kenya, Uganda and Pakistan.
