Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we reached our #GivingTuesday goal of raising $10,000 for schoolchildren in some of the world's neediest  See more

THE STORY:

In a tiny classroom in Lebanon, you’ll find Saja. She’s an 11 year-old Syrian refugee, uprooted and traumatized by war. Her bare-bones school is  the only place  she feels safe. But without  support, it may close.

In Ethiopia, there’s an 8 year-old called Eremias. He’s underweight for his age. At dawn, he’ll begin his six-mile walk to class. Once there, he’ll receive a simple lunch, the first time he’s eaten in days.

On a rural road in India, too, you’ll find 14 year-old Anvi heading to school alone. She belongs to the lowest social caste. Strangers harass her daily.  The local authorities do nothing to stop it at all.

For poor kids like these, school means more than pencils and books. It’s a sanctuary where they feel normal — a place where they can be kids.

At Catholic Near East Welfare Association (CNEWA), we support schools in Northeast Africa, India and the Middle East. We work with local churches and religious sisters who nurture kids of every faith.

But the number of children is growing. Funding is drying up. These girls and boys — and the schools that are their lifeline —  need your help.

Can you help us keep their classrooms open? Contribute today, and you’ll ensure these kids receive an education. Plus meals and vaccinations to keep them strong.

You’ll help create group housing near school, so rural girls don’t walk dangerous distances to class. You’ll provide the traumatized with a refuge that feels like home.

Most of all, you’ll give these shattered kids a reason to hope. So please help them if you can.
