Help Make Education a Right, Not a Privilege for Children Around the World

The United Nations recently reported that as recently as 2009, there were more than 67 million “out of school” children around the globe* – children not going to school due to financial, social or accessibility issues.  Lack of education puts these children at risk of poverty, sub-standard health care and many other socio-economic problems.  

If we can help even one child receive a better education, the world will be a better place. But we aren't pledging to help just ONE child -- through the EduCare Global Education Movement, we have already helped more than 800 students. And with your help, we can reach many more.

EduCare has now partnered with Pencils of Promise (PoP) to expand the work of its Global Education Movement by supporting PoP to build schools and classrooms for children around the world. 

Kicking off the partnership launch is an initiative to build a preschool classroom for the children of San Antonio Chacayá  in the hills of Guatemala.  The town’s only school sits atop a hill so steep that most young children can not make the daily climb without risking injury. Due to these conditions, more than 50% of preschoolers do not attend school. The community was committed to increasing access to education and secured a plot of land in the center of town – easily accessible to all of the students. But, they lacked the funding to build the classroom. Now EduCare is providing the funding, through PoP, for this important initiative.

Please sign the "I pledge to take action" petition below and join the Global Education Movement today HERE.
