Ira is eleven and she's a survivor of typhoon Haiyan. Ira want's to be a nurse when she grows up but her classroom was heavily damaged by typhoon Haiyan and she's been learning in terrible and dangerous conditions ever since. With your help we'll repair Ira's classroom and give her back the education she needs to fulfil her dreams and build herself 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 Ira, in tatters. Ira goes to school in Pitogo but her classroom has still not been repaired and is in a very dangerous condition. This is damaging Ira's education and is also putting her and her classmates at real risk of injury.
Your donations will be used to repair and refurbish Ira'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. Ira is one of 22 kids using the classroom and this project will meet Ira's share of the total repair costs.
Your donations will give Ira back the education she needs to escape poverty when she's older. Pitogo is not far from Tacloban but its more rural location means that kids like Ira are poorer, and more neglected, than those in the centre of the city. By allowing us to repair Ira's classroom, you'll ensure she can recover from the typhoon, and can also build herself a stronger future in the long-term.
