Around the world, more than 57 million children don’t attend school.
Why? Gender-based violence and discrimination are a couple reasons, but not the biggest.
The main reason? Cost.
In many developing countries, public schools are not free. The cost of tuition can be more than a few hundred U.S. dollars per term — an overwhelming expense to an already struggling family.
Holt’s dedicated child sponsors provide the tools and support to help children reach for their dreams, focus on their studies and succeed in school by covering the cost of their sponsored child’s tuition.
But we are asking you to rise up and help children in need, too — this time to provide for the additional costs associated with the exciting back-to-school time.
Thank you for giving children and families the tools to build a successful, hopeful future. You are transforming the world for an orphaned, abandoned or vulnerable child.
