Protecting Children Through Education
HELP US RAISE $500,000 TO GET CHILDREN BACK TO SCHOOL
The 2.35 million children in Right To Play’s programs in Africa, Asia and the Middle East are more vulnerable now than ever before. We need your help today to raise the crucial funds to keep protecting, educating, and empowering them.
Continued funding is critical to keep providing life-changing educational services that have shifted to prevent the spread of COVID-19. But COVID isn’t the only threat in the communities where we work in. Girls are already less likely to return to school each year, and the pandemic is making them even more vulnerable to abuse, early marriage, and child labor.
With a goal of raising $500,000, we're asking for your help today to get girls back in the classroom and learning.
Why We Need You Now
Being out of school puts girls at greater risk of early marriage and pregnancy, abuse, female genital mutilation, and forced labor. More than 75% of caregivers in an emergency are women and girls. This means girls are at greater risk of having their education ended permanently, even once schools reopen. In fact, studies show that girls are 50% less likely than boys to come back to secondary school after an emergency. We're working with families, communities, and governments to protect girls from these outcomes and ensure they can go back to school when the crisis is over.
