BENEFITING: Very Important Projects Fund
Less than $0.55 a day can keep a refugee child in school The displaced children of the Syrian 7-year conflict have very limited access to education and in many cases have missed several years of school. The children within this population are now known as belonging to the lost generation, which UNHCR estimates at 2 million Syrian children.
This was the motivation for Bareeq Education Organization, now four years running, to provide this segment with free education in order to give them a chance at a brighter and more successful future.
In partnership with VIP.Fund, a US 501(c)3 organization, we are raising $200 per child to support 75 refugee children's education in Jordan.
What will your contribution go to?
- $200 per year, or $17 per month keeps a refugee child in school for the whole year.
- No Lost Generation. Keeping marginalized kids in school and off the streets is the only way to give them a better future.
- All proceeds go directly to school programs and educational tools to keep their education free
- Classes that include math, science, English, Arabic, art, and computer education
- School workshops and activities
