By choosing to support this program, you can contribute to empowering these children to go to school and to choose their own future.
Until October 10th, W4 is doubling all donations to this project!
It’s back-to-school time for young students in France, but on the other side of the world, in South East Asia, millions of poor children can only dream of going to school: approximately 18.6 million children in South East Asia are not enrolled in school.
And yet, access to quality education remains one of the most effective ways to break the cycle of poverty, to protect children and improve their welfare and life prospects.
Together, let’s take action to defend the right to education of children from poor communities, for the sake of their futures, and for everyone’s future!
The SOLUTIONS WE'RE PROPOSING
W4’s field partner, Children of Asia, provides access to schooling and other crucial care services for vulnerable children from poor communities in Southeast Asia, in Cambodia, Laos, the Philippines and Vietnam. In each of these countries, our field partner works to overcome the many barriers that prevent children from the most disadvantaged communities from attending school, barriers such as poverty, discrimination, forced labour, and a lack of adequate infrastructure and/or trained teachers.
In addition to creating schooling opportunities, Children of Asia works to provide children in need with healthcare, food aid and moral support. The objective is to support children throughout the course of their education and to help them to obtain the skills and qualifications they need to ultimately secure safe, decent employment.
Join us in working to ensure that children from impoverished communities can have the opportunity of quality education, so they can determine their own futures.
THE IMPACT OF GIVING
Your giving helps to fund schooling opportunities for approximately 12,000 children from impoverished communities in Cambodia, Laos, the Philippines and Vietnam.
Your help offers vulnerable children the chance of a better future:
- access to quality schooling;
- support and care services from qualified teachers, social workers and health professionals;
- support at school and career guidance.
Your donation is a dream come true for these children: giving them the opportunity of education and the chance to determine their own futures.
