“November 20th is an important date as it is the date in 1959 when the UN General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child. It is also the date in 1989 when the UN General assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child. This is a day that is all about the importance of children and how they have special rights and freedoms that help them to grow into happy, healthy adults.” [childrensday.ie]
After years of emphasising the rights of children, there are still thousands and even millions of children who lack access to basic necessities. Many still do not have a roof over their heads, not enough food for daily consumption, neglected and abused for monetary gain, and the list goes on.
With our Care for Education and Orphan Sponsorship programme, we call for donors like you to support these children around the world.
To date, we have supported over 3,000 children in Indonesia, Gambia, Pakistan, Gaza, Palestine, Senegal, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Bangladesh, India and Nepal.
Since 2016, you have helped to give:
– 1,513 stationery sets
– 326 school uniforms
– 150 school bags
– 50 bicycles
– 3 schools built, benefitting over 450 children
– orphan sponsorship to 617 orphans
Children are our strength and our future. It’s crucial to mould them from a young age and to let them explore. We will never know that they might be the ones who will make a change in this world.
1. Build a school
Education is important. However, many children do not have the opportunity to go to school to learn. In rural areas of developing countries, there is a severe absence of basic infrastructure and facilities.
2. Provide school materials
For many children, having access to any education can be a very real struggle, and being prepared for a new school year is an impossibility. You can provide new stationery sets, books, uniforms and even a bicycle for the children! Your contributions will usually be distributed at the beginning of each year when school commences.
3. Sponsor an orphan
The program covers a quality education, basic health support, provision of shelter, support for the family or guardian, and clothing. An orphan deserves to receive love and care too, just like our own children.
4. Spread the word!
No matter how much you give, nothing is ever too small. Share this post to your friends and family members. Even a click of the share button can make a difference.
Give a brand new start for a child. Support his dreams and let him rewrite his future!
