This Back to School, you have the power to help children around the world have proper education. Make a donation. Then share this fundraising page with friends and family.
The money raised will go to ensure UNICEF meets the following goal target by 2015: Ensure that all boys and girls complete a full course of primary schooling.
As of 2001 estimates around 115 million children of primary school age, the majority of them girls, do not attend school.
Meeting the Education Goal will speed progress toward every other Millennium Goal. Educating children helps reduce poverty and promote gender equality. It helps lower child mortality rates and promote concern for the environment.
Because children in countries devastated by natural disaster and armed conflict also deserve to have an education. Let’s Go Back to School with UNICEF!
UNICEF fights for the survival and development of all children, in all situations, all of the time. This relentless conviction has propelled UNICEF to help save more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization. We believe in a world where there are ZERO starving children; ZERO exploited children; ZERO children denied an education, and ZERO children deprived of clean water. By joining Team UNICEF, you will help us get closer to a day when every child has a safe and healthy childhood.
