    Our children are our nation’s greatest resource, and we must invest in them to create a brighter future for all people. Ensuring children have access to early childhood education is one of the most effective ways to break the cycle of poverty. Participants of the 2017 Advocacy Summit are urging their representatives to invest in #earlyed, which is critical to kids’ success in school and in life. #InvestInKids

    At age 14, Febi she knew she wanted more out of life after spending years on the streets. Unable to afford college, she was unsure about her future until she enrolled in our youth empowerment and employability program where she completed courses in photography and cinematography. Now she’s gained skills to operate a business and work independently as a freelance filmmaker. She’s already making enough money to support her family and save for university.

    Thousands of Syrian families have fled to neighboring countries for survival— and after 6 years of war, the global refugee crisis shows no signs of slowing. We're doing whatever it takes to give these children hope for a better future— and now through #ChildSponsorship, we can do even more for refugee children living in Egypt. Help us stop the nightmares by sponsoring a refugee child today at the link in bio.

    Girls can spend as many as 6 hours a day fetching water, keeping them out of school and putting them at risk of assault and trafficking. By digging and drilling wells and installing water pumps and latrines, we’re improving the lives of children like 13-year-old Lubabatu* from Nigeria.
