Argei is eleven and he's a survivor of typhoon Haiyan. Argei dreams of being an army officer when he grows up but his classroom was heavily damaged by typhoon Haiyan and he's been learning in terrible and dangerous conditions ever since. With your help we'll repair Argei's classroom and give him back the education he needs to fulfil his dreams and build himself a bright future.
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, including Argei, in tatters. Argei goes to school in Pitogo but his classroom has still not been repaired and is in a very dangerous condition. This is damaging Argei's education and is also putting him and his classmates at real risk of injury.
Your donations will be used to repair and refurbish Argei's classroom. We'll replace the classroom's damaged roof and internal ceiling. We'll fix the classroom's doors and windows to make it secure and watertight. We'll also repaint the classroom to make it bright and colourful. Argei is one of 22 kids using the classroom and this project will meet Argei's share of the total repair costs.
Your donations will give Argei back the education he needs to escape poverty when he's older. Pitogo is not far from Tacloban but its more rural location means that kids like Argei are poorer, and more neglected, than those in the centre of the city. By allowing us to repair Argei's classroom, you'll ensure he can recover from the typhoon, and can also build himself a stronger future in the long-term.
