Summary

Typhoon Haiyan tore through the Philippines in November 2013. It damaged or destroyed over 2,500 schools leaving the education of hundreds of thousands of kids in tatters. We're committed to helping kids get the education they need by rebuilding damaged classrooms, providing school supplies and by making schools safe and fun places to learn.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Today, thousands of children in Tacloban remain unable to return to school, or are learning in in tents or damaged classrooms. Even where classrooms have been rebuilt many families cannot afford to pay for a school lunch, transport or school supplies, so they keep their kids home. If children can't return to school, or learn in poor conditions, they'll receive little or no education and be unable to find stable jobs when they're older.

How will this project solve this problem?

We've already helped more than 4,500 children get back to school by providing school meals, cleaning up debris and by repairing or rebuilding classrooms. With your support, we'll help thousands of additional students get the education they need by working with many more schools in, and around, Tacloban.

Potential Long Term Impact

If children don't receive an education they won't learn the skills they need to grow into successful young adults who can find jobs and contribute to their communities. Getting kids back to school is a key factor in both recovery from typhoon Haiyan, and also in building stronger communities in the long-term. After all, an educated community is a resilient community!
