Our work in
All children have the right to a high-quality education, but there are millions of girls and boys who don't complete a full course of primary school.
In the communities where ChildFund works, education is a top priority. It has the greatest potential to take a child and their family out of poverty and into a bright and prosperous future.
Small voices, Big Dreams
In 2016, ChildFund released our Small Voices, Big Dreams survey report where we asked more than 6,000 children to tell us their views and opinions on education and school. The results were clear: regardless of where a child is born, school is highly valued, and it is well-understood that education opens doors for future opportunities.
Better access to early education for children.
Starting from birth and continuing up to age five, Early Childhood Development (ECD) is the most vital development phase of a person's life. Your donations are helping us offer ECD to young children in ChildFund-supported communities.
Improving classrooms and school facilities.
In some communities, access to education is hindered by unsafe and overcrowded classrooms. Your donations give us the ability to renovate and construct classrooms so even more children and youth can attend school.
Training teachers on quality teaching methodologies.
Being a teacher is a difficult job. Not only do you have the future of the country in your classroom, but you also have to look out for their wellbeing on a daily basis. Your donations help us improve teachers' ability to do the best job they can.
Providing desks and chairs, learning materials, etc.
A barrier to education is access to learning materials like books, pens, uniforms and more. Your donations help ChildFund-supported students access learning materials, and schools to be equipped with adequate furnishings.
Making it easier for drop-outs to return to class.
There are many reasons why children and youth drop out of school. But, once they've left, it can be very hard to return. Your donations help us provide opportunities for students to return to class in a safe learning environment.
More vocational training for parents and young people.
In many communities, job opportunities are limited, and new employable skills are hard to come by. Your donations are giving us the ability to offer vocational training for youth and parents in our dedicated programme areas.
