BENEFITING: UNICEF USA
A 6-year-old Nigerian girl named Shise recently sent a handwritten note to Bill Gates, along with $77 to contribute to children and education in refugee camps in Northern Nigeria. We have set up this Crowdrise site to match Shise’s incredible generosity toward this important effort. Shise’s contribution, and funds from this Crowdrise campaign, will be directed to an existing UNICEF-assisted project in two northeastern states of Nigeria – Borno and Yobe.
This project would increase safe learning spaces by establishing 14 temporary learning areas; increase access to learning materials for 17,000 school children; train at least 120 teachers in child-centered pedagogy and psychosocial support; and strengthen the capacity of 12 school-based management committees to support children’s, especially girls, access and learning.
