Education is the single most effective weapon against poverty. When children are educated, they are empowered to transform not just their own lives — but to break the cycle of poverty in their families and communities.
But around the world, children face tremendous obstacles to their education and the sad truth is that millions of school-aged children are not in school.
School provides critical protections for children in developing countries, keeping them safe from traffickers, exploitation, forced child labor, child marriage, and empowers them to overcome staggering illiteracy rates in their communities.
Our job is to remove every hurdle until the path to a long, full education is so simple and so smooth, it’s the only choice for children.
That’s why today, we are asking you to donate $25 to provide school supplies, a uniform, books and other materials to one child in Holt’s education programs.
