Children tell us why education is important

Watch kids interview their peers about a subject that is central to Children Believe’s mission

Schoolgirls in India

We’re committed to making it possible for children to access education, so they can find a career, learn their rights and change their future. The kids in the non-profit, India-based TeachForIndia video understand that, too.

“We can study and become some person who can do something in our life,” one boy in the video tells his peer.

At Children Believe, we empower children to overcome barriers — such as harmful traditional practices, and poverty — preventing them from accessing education. We also help advance child rights and protection, promote equality for girls and partner with women for change, so lasting change is possible.

Watch the video below as children from India share why they think education is important.

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

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.
