Millions more are in school but failing to learn because the resources simply aren’t good enough. We won’t stand by and let this continue.
At Street Child we are fighting for a world where it is seen as unacceptable for a child not to be in education.
With our ‘Count Me In’ appeal we are aiming to provide more children with access to education and the resources they need to learn ensuring every child has the best chance of success.
Can we count you in to support our appeal?
Give before 21st Feb 2019 and all public donations to Street Child’s ‘Count Me In’ campaign will be matched by the UK Government up to £2 million, meaning we can help more children in the world’s toughest places go to school and learn.
Your donation to our ‘Count Me In’ campaign will be used to help children into education in some of the world’s toughest places through support such as paying school fees, buying uniforms and learning materials, training teachers or refurbishing classrooms and building schools. Match funding from the UK government will be used for similar work to help more children go to school and learn in Sierra Leone.
Here’s how donations to Street Child’s ‘Count Me In’ campaign will make a difference with the UK Aid match:
£7.50 becomes a total of £15, which means that one more child is counted in because their school fees are paid
£15 becomes a total of £30, which will cover school fees, uniform and learning materials for a child
£45 becomes a total of £90, which will provide learning materials for a whole class
£150 becomes a total of £300, which will allow us to train a teacher
£450 becomes a total of £900, which will allow us to refurbish a classroom
It is vital that we provide children with access to education and the resources they need to learn, ensuring every child has the best chance of success. Street Child provides simple and sustainable solutions such as paying school fees, buying uniforms and learning materials, training teachers, refurbishing classrooms and building schools to ensure that children have access to education.
Education is the single most transformative investment that can be made in a country.
By providing more children with access to a quality education we give them better life chances. Beyond providing better employment opportunities, which increase income and reduce poverty, education also supports better health and empowers girls to have a voice in decisions that affect their life. In conflict situations, education serves to promote peace and stability.
