UPDATE: Check out the school tracker here. Street Child has successful enough funding for 329 schools, many of which are complete!!
This holiday season help us give the gift of an education through Street Child.
We'd like to join Street Child on their mission to build 1,000 schools so that the 121 million children around the world that are not currently being given the chance to go to school can learn to read and write.
We have done endless research on the organization, and Merritt has met with the CEO of their USA location a number of times. In particular, we are advocates of Street Child's sustainable, holistic model, by which they build the capacity and strength of local organizations and communities. The schools are built by local professionals, and teachers are recruited locally and trained by qualified Street Child educators.
Street Child also connects orphaned and abandoned children with their families! We have direct knowledge of how important this is from our time with UNICEF in Cambodia, where we learned that many of these children end up being placed in local mismanaged "nonprofits" for a monetary value.
To date Street Child has helped 200,000 children to go to school and supported over 15,000 families to set up businesses in some of the world's toughest places.
We hope you can join us on our huge mission to sponsor an entire school for Street Child!! Thank you so much & happy holidays xo
