Thank you for signing up for the Spring Break Immersive Program, brought to you by Students Combat Corona and JJEcofriends. Our free program has been a work in progress across multiple teams of students, from the generous time of our student teachers, to the hours upon hours put in by our student administrators.
As students, we understand the importance of education in shaping our lives. Our education has been how we have gained new knowledge and skills, found our self-dependency, and most importantly, given us the freedom to construct our own narratives. We want to give back to those who don't have the same access to education, and we hope that our free program for your kids has inspired you to support us.
Here, 100% of your money will be going to refugee children, in the following ways:
1. For every $20:
The first day of school can be an anxious one for any child. Imagine the first-day jitters of a refugee child--the new kid not only in class, but in an entirely new country.
$20 will fill a child's backpack with school supplies, helping a new kid feel ready to learn!
2. For every $58:
Worldwide, over 90% of school-age children are out of school due to COVID-19, amounting to more than 1.5 billion who are missing out on critical time for learning, support, and social-emotional growth.
$58 will supply the school fees, books, and other supplies a child needs continue their education for a year.
3. For every $116:
Education is not a luxury--it is a lifeline for children in crisis. In addition to the pandemic's effect on families' health and economic livelihoods, COVID-19 will have a long-term impact on children's education, especially on that of girls.
$116 will help provide the tuition, books, and supplies two girls need for their education.
4. For every $240:
In places like South Sudan, Syria, and Lebanon, conflict and displacement have left many children without access to an education.
$240 will help rehabilitate a school and supply a classroom with chairs, tables, chalkboards, and other essentials so students and teachers can return, learn, and thrive.
5. For every $1500:
For children fleeing war or disaster, a return to school is a return to normalcy. A warm classroom creates a foundation of learning that will help children and families successfully rebuild their lives.
$1500 will help build an emergency classroom, housed in tents, that provide a safe space for children to learn, express themselves, and bond with other children, many of whom have lost friends and family members.
All transactions will be taken in partnership with the International Rescue Committee, a globally trusted humanitarian aid, relief, and development NPO.
