The world celebrated International Day of Education yesterday, so today we’re inspired by a UNICEF video showing how education spurs a Bangladesh parent’s hope for her children’s future.

“If we send our children to school, things will get better,” says the mother in the video, adding: “We can’t teach them because we are illiterate.”

At Christian Children’s Fund of Canada, we see every day how important it is for parents to be engaged in their children’s future. Only then can the child be encouraged to finish school and succeed in their future — rather than be forced to drop out to work or get married.

Watch the UNICEF video now to get a better understanding of how important education is in the developing world.

Help children access education today through our gift catalogue.

ABOUT CHILDREN BELIEVE (formerly Christian Children's Fund of Canada):

Children Believe works globally to empower children to dream fearlessly, stand up for what they believe in — and be heard. For 60 years, we’ve brought together brave young dreamers, caring supporters and partners, and unabashed idealists. Together, we’re driven by a common belief: creating access to education — inside and outside of classrooms — is the most powerful tool children can use to change their world.
