WORDS NOT WAR

The power and potential of education to equip every child for life cannot be underestimated.
Only the educated are free.

Epictetus

Yet as it stands, 24 million children are unable to go to school, and less than 2% of international aid goes towards funding education.

This cannot continue. Because only through education can today’s youth become leaders of tomorrow.

Without access to schools, educational materials or qualified teachers, young people are being denied the chance to become autonomous global citizens, equipped with the knowledge they need to prosper in later life.

We therefore support projects that give children access to quality teaching - whatever their circumstances, and wherever they live. We want to establish safe learning spaces, provide better educational materials, and train teachers to support children who have experienced unimaginable trauma. In this way, school is not only a place to learn, but a haven of stability and calm in a world rocked by conflict.

Every child’s future must begin in the classroom. We are determined to make that happen.

Always stronger together, we are One Family.

Nour’s story: Recovery through learning

After six-year-old Nour and her family fled their war-torn Syrian village, they were kidnapped and held captive for five days by a militia group. Beaten, stripped and starved, the family eventually escaped and found solace in a refugee camp. Here, their home for three years has been a tiny tent, alongside 50,000 other Syrians.

Although lucky to be alive, Nour was profoundly traumatised by their harrowing experience. “She was such a kind, friendly girl, but I watched her go crazy,” her mother Rana sobs. “She wouldn’t talk. She wouldn’t eat. She’d wake the neighbours with her nightmares."

But thankfully, Nour is now making progress. She receives an informal education at a child-friendly space each week, and finally has a chance to reach her full potential. With time and continued support, she will be able to carve out a future and contribute to her community and her family.

Nour’s tale is not unusual, however. Millions of youngsters just like her have been robbed of a childhood and now need stability through education.

As a united family, we aim for every child to have the freedom to learn.

Here's how you can offer a helping hand:
£100 will pay for a vulnerable child to go to school for a year.
£500 will provide a year of literacy, life skills, and vocational training for a young person.
£1,100 will provide a tent in a temporary school.
£3,000 will provide 20 ‘schools in a box’ - which can each help 40 children continue their education in times of emergency.
£20,000 will provide a safe space for 25 children to play, learn, and receive support for six months.
