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.
With your help, we can help turn these poor students’ lives around and provide children with a safe, functional and welcoming school. 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.
Since 2015, we have helped construct 49 government primary schools across Pakistan, Bangladesh, Kenya and Nepal; helping almost 12,250 children enjoy the gift of education every single day.
It is not a cheap to renovate existing buildings or in many cases completely construct a school. On average, it costs around £10,000 to fully construct and complete the facility so every penny you can spare will help hundreds of children receive the education they deserve.
