THE STORY:

I'm Ben and Im 9 years old. When I grow up, I want to be a doctor. When I found out about kids in the Philippines can't go to school because they were too poor or because they lost their schools to a typhoon, it made me sad. Kids shouldn't be working this young. So, I want to help them back to school because kids like me should be learning so they can grow up to be a doctor like me!

HELP ME SEND KIDS TO SCHOOL AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Why is 2015 important? Because 15 years ago, world leaders promised all kids would go to primary school. But, 1 in 10 primary-aged kids are still out of school. And I want to change that.

At today's worldwide rate of enrollment, I'll be 81 years old before each and every child is in school.

WHY I WANT TO HELP

School has allowed me to make friends, learn about science, math, and art, to dream about what I can be when I grow up.  I think every child should have the opportunity to learn about that.

There are many kids who can't go to school in the Philippines and I want to help them. So, please help me help some kids in the Philippines go to school by donating.

WHAT NEEDS TO CHANGE?

  • 126 million children aren't in school today – that's equal to the entire population of Japan. 
  • Over 25% of children in rural areas will drop out of school.
  • 1 in 3 children missing out on school have a disability. 
  • There are still 31 million girls of primary school age who have never been to school. 
  • If the current pace continues it will be 2086 before all children complete a full course of primary schooling, and 2111 before achieving lower secondary school completion. 
  • Worldwide, 250 million children – many of them from disadvantaged backgrounds – are not learning basic reading and maths skills. 
  • Approximately $26 billion is needed every year to pay for the extra schools and teachers needed to educate every child
