World Teachers’ Day: a reminder about the hearts behind our education systems
Share your gratitude for a favourite teacher by taking part in our #WalkToSchool day challenge
Teachers are the heart of education, encouraging many across the globe, so this #WorldTeachersDay we’re celebrating these special people who go above and beyond to ensure learning never stops, even through the pandemic.
“[Teachers] are the principal actors of the global education recovery efforts and are key in accelerating progress towards inclusive and equitable quality education for every learner, in every circumstance”, noted UNESCO’s Audrey Azoulay, UN Children’s Fund’s Henrietta Fore, International Labour Organization’s Guy Ryder and Education International’s David Edwards, in a joint statement
At Children Believe, not only do we help children access education, but we help teachers and communities learn and grow, too. In 2019/2020, we’ve supported more than 466,000 children, teachers, parents and guardians in accessing inclusive, quality education.
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.
