Support Education in Tacloban



Typhoon Haiyan was one of the strongest storms ever to make landfall. The Philippines is used to storms, but even their concrete shelters were destroyed by Haiyan's vicious winds and massive storm surge. Today, thousands of children are still unable to return to school. We're committed to getting kids back to learning by rebuilding damaged or destroyed schools, replacing lost materials, providing school meals, and much more!

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Today, thousands of children in Tacloban remain unable to return to school. Schools have been damaged by the storm, and even where they're structurally sound, many families cannot afford to pay for a school lunch or school supplies so they keep their kids home. If children can't return to school, their ability to thrive will be compromised in the long-term.

How will this project solve this problem?

We've already helped more than 5,000 children get back to school by providing school meals, supporting clean-up efforts and repairing classrooms. With your support, we'll help thousands of additional students get back to learning by rebuilding or repairing schools, investing in school meals when necessary, and helping schools meet students' needs.

Potential Long Term Impact

If children are unable to return to school, they are unlikely to learn the skills they need to grow into successful young adults who contribute to their communities. Getting kids back to school is a key factor in long-term recover in disaster-affected communities. After all, an educated community is a resilient community!
