CARE FOR EDUCATION
124 million children are out of school, 25 million are expected never to enter a classroom. 50% live in countries affected by conflict.
We will not achieve our vision of a more prosperous, equitable, and healthier world if so many children are denied a chance to learn the skills they need to chart their own path in life and live up to their full potential.
Poverty often pushes children to work, yet when children leave school early to enter the labor force they are more likely to end up in jobs that limit their chances of breaking out of poverty.
Education goes beyond saving lives – it helps children and young people determine the shape of their lives. Schools provide stability and protection and bring communities together
1 in 3 of the 124 million out-of-school children live in countries affected by conflict & crises. Last year, less than 2% of humanitarian aid went toward education.
Unless education in conflict and crisis areas is prioritized, millions of children will miss out on the chance at a better future for themselves and their countries.
Girls and boys who learn to read, write and count will provide a better future for their families and countries. With improved education, so many other areas are positively affected. In short, education has the power to make the world a better place.
Education goes beyond saving lives – it helps children and young people determine the shape of their lives.
We are committed to continuing to help millions of children and refugees regardless of ethnicity, religion or any other factor. Please support our work today :
1. EDUCATION - CARE SCHOOLS/BACK TO SCHOOL
Statistics show that over 2,960 schools have been destroyed and many others are being used by refugees and displaced people.
We seek to lead the way in delivering development programmes through education and vocational training to restore stability to the lives of Syrians and give them the support to lead their own lives.
School Uniforms & Equipment - Every Child Deserves an Education
It’s a familiar story for many parents at the start of a new school year. Buying the new uniform, making sure those shoes are shiny for that all important first day and negotiating the hazards of the school run.
It might seem stressful but our children are lucky to have access to a good education and that we’re there to worry about them.
For many orphan children, having access to any education can be a very real struggle and being prepared for a new school year is an impossibility.
Take Pakistan for instance. In some rural areas the literacy rate, especially for young girls can be as low as 8% as they’re sent out to work at an early age to support their families and themselves. What chance do these children have to break the cycle of poverty and reach their full potential if they’re not given the opportunity to expand their knowledge?
This school year, give an orphan what they need to succeed
At GER we feel that education is a right, not a privilege. We want the orphan children we support to become the doctors, dentists and architects of tomorrow.
We ask you to join with us and give these children the equipment that we take for granted. For just $50, you will ensure that our children will receive books, uniforms, stationery and a school bag to put it all in.
