Children deserve education even in times of war and strife. We have worked hard to provide thousands of refugee children with a free education, over half of whom are girls. Because of harsh conditions these children are fleeing and continue to live under, we also provide them with social services such as insurance, healthy lunches, and assistance transitioning back into the formal school system. Your assistance allows us to continue protecting these children who are the future of our country
