Your gift can help pay school fees or provide essentials like school uniforms, textbooks, and school supplies — helping ensure that a child in poverty can receive what he or she needs to get an education.
Tragically, 75 million primary-school-age children are not in school. One reason? Without the money for basic education supplies like pencils and paper, children from developing countries are often turned away from school because they can’t fully participate.
In Tanzania, Margreth missed a whole year of school because her parents didn’t have enough money to buy her school materials. “I could not go to school,” she recalls. “I was so sad I was crying.” Margareth wasn’t alone, as fewer than half the children in Tanzania receive an education.
Thankfully, kids4school provided the books and other class materials Margareth needed. Today she’s back in school and pursuing her dream of becoming a nurse. “I feel much stronger now,” she says. “I have hope for my future.”
You can help more children like Margareth get the education they need.
