HOW WILL YOU SUPPORT REFUGEE CHILDREN TO GO TO SCHOOL?

 

JUST $27 can provide a school uniform. $59 a school desk. $9,008 a whole new classroom.

$168 can fit out a whole school with materials for children with special needs. Look here to see how you can help, then click below to send your support.

What’s exciting is how your help now can have a life-long impact.

 


Elizabeth

I met Elizabeth two weeks ago when I was at Kakuma, and have included my interview notes for you here

When Elizabeth was 13, her father offered her as wife to an old man, for the price of a few cows. Elizabeth ran away, but was caught and taken by the man. He forced her to have his babies when she was just 15.

You can use your gift to support someone like Elizabeth in an Accelerated Learning Program (ALP) to complete Grades 3 – 6 in two years, studying with young people her own age, who suffered the same kind of trauma she did.

NEW!! You can support a Refugee Teacher


You can now support a teacher for the complete 18 month Accelerated Learning Program for $1,800 – or set up a monthly donation for just $100.
Our aim is to support 76 teachers. 

Teachers use thematic teaching principles. They incorporate a concept like ‘Home’ in each subject, whether Maths, Science, Health or Language.

 Asende, the Deputy Principal at Shabelle Early Childhood centre said: " I like teaching so much. I want these children to get knowledge like I have. If some can become teachers like me, this will be a blessing. 

The challenges are many. When you have 100 children in your class, it is difficult. During the rainy season, it is very difficult for teachers and children to get to school because of the floods. The resources are limited."

As you can see with more than 100 children in class, and few resources, your support is precious.
