WE Are Silent ~
WE Are Silent is a campaign that helps to spread awareness for children around the world whose voices are not heard, and who are deprived of their rights to be educated. Around 57 million people aren't educated. Only 6.7%, or 469 million people in the world are educated.
Education is not a priviledge, it is a basic right that everybody should have because it promotes individual freedom. The main cause of not being educated is poverty. Also, many people are too scared to speak out, and if they do, many times they are not heard.
Our actions are a powerful tool for social change. By taking a vow of silence in solidarity with those whose voices go unheard, we can prove just how impactful our voices truly are. So turn up the volume and let your silence be heard. With WE Are Silent, you can take a stand for human rights and fundraise for social change. Donating $50 can give primary education to one child. Donating $1000 can provide good furniture to a classroom. Donating $10,000 can build a new classroom.
North Star Academy will be hosting a WE Are Silent event. This will take place on November 27th. Students and teachers will try to reach a goal of being silent for at least 3 hours.
Our vow of silence starts the conversations that lead to incredible fundraising and awareness-raising campaigns—helping to amplify the voice of others—and donations that provide a tangible impact with access to education. Help raise awareness for the millions of people around the world who are uneducated and go unheard.
