A Year of School


A chance at a brighter future

Education is not a luxury—it is a lifeline for children in crisis. In addition to the pandemic’s effect on families’ health and economic livelihoods, COVID-19 will have a long-term impact on children’s education. Worldwide, more than 90 percent of all school-aged children are out of school, amounting to more than 1.5 billion who are missing out on critical time for learning, support and social-emotional growth. $58 can supply the school fees, books and other supplies a child needs to continue their education for a year.
