Education

Whether living alone on the streets or with a parent who earns just enough to pay for food and little else, it’s children who suffer most from living in extreme poverty.

As well as struggling for food and shelter, poverty robs children of opportunities to break the cycle. The greatest of these is education. Your money helps us provide it.
