Support Children in War Zones with Education and Opportunity
Can you imagine living with the sight of bullet holes as reminders of war? No child should have to live with this memory, but many do. Sign PetitionSign Petition
Charles understands this harsh reality all too well. Since the young age of 11, Charles has never lived in a time of peace.
In parts of Africa an AK-47 assault rifle costs as little as $12. To a young person in a war zone like Charles, a gun can seem like the solution to all their problems. Violence is not a solution, but education can be.
Every child deserves a safe childhood, especially if they live in a war zone. But war-affected children who are not in school face threats and hardships not faced by those receiving an education. A lack of future income, the threat of abuse, and recruitment into armed groups are more likely when a child is not in school.
That is why education is so critical for children living in war-torn areas. And we need your support today to help bring children like Charles this opportunity.
Too many people turn a blind eye to the vulnerability of children living amongst violence. But if enough of us come together in support of education as the solution, then we stand a chance of lifting kids like Charles out of the desperate situations they face.
Please sign on today if you agree that every child has the right to accessible, safe education.
