In November 2013, Angel's world was turned upside down when the strongest storm ever recorded hit her home town. Angel and her family were lucky to survive, but now they have to start all over again. One of the biggest risks to Angel is that she won't heave a place to go to school. Without a place to learn, the storm could stunt her education. We need your support to rebuild classrooms, provide school meals and school supplies to get Angel and kids like her learning again.
Today, Angel and 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.
With your support, we'll help Angel and thousands of students just like her get back to learning by rebuilding or repairing schools, investing in school meals when necessary, and helping schools meet students' needs.
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!
