Helping make education possible for every child
Watch this reminder of why we need to keep working together to make inclusive, equitable, quality education available for all
When children are given the right tools to access education, they can turn their dreams into opportunities, and every child should get that chance, as shown in the UNESCO video below.
But, it’s not always easy. “School design may favour some students over others, as do many laws and policies,” the video reminds us, alluding to the need to help meet the United Nations global goal for inclusive and equitable, quality education for all.
At Children Believe, we help children access education so they can pursue incredible opportunities. In our last fiscal year, we helped 466,000 children, teachers and guardians access inclusive quality education by meeting their basic needs and breaking barriers — such as poverty, child labour and more — keeping them from school.
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.
