Programs for children
As stated in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, education is every child’s right. However, many children live in communities or under conditions where education is not available. Some of these children live in rural societies, far from schools, or spend their days working to help support their families. Finding these children and bringing educational opportunities to them is essential in affording each child this basic human right.
The Global Fund for Children seeks out educational organizations that are helping children learn despite all obstacles—and that are achieving results. We search for the most creative and successful methods to help children around the world receive a quality education. Your gift will support innovative programs that turn boats into schoolhouses or that hold classes on train platforms and by garbage dumps, where many children work. Help give an education to a child, wherever he or she may be found.
