    In rural Malawi, access to clean water is limited. As a result, children often get sick, miss school and fall behind in their education. With support from our child sponsors, we provide school-based handwashing stations, clean water and soap as part of our lessons on good hygiene. In turn, children often teach their families about handwashing, which can help keep whole communities safe from preventable disease. As a sponsor, you can help us ensure children in Malawi are able to stay healthy, in class and learning- link in bio.

    12-year-old Anika* has been attending our Mobile Learning Center in India for 3 years— but when we first met her, she hadn’t been going to school at all. After our team persuaded her to visit our Mobile Learning Center, she began attending regularly until she felt confident enough to re-enroll in school. Today, she loves going to class and campaigns for children’s rights. You can help us reach more children like Anika- learn more at the link in bio. *Name changed for protection

    The first time we met Nirob in 2012, he was a newborn, malnourished and sick. His family struggled to grow enough to eat and couldn't afford to buy fuel for cooking or blankets or clothing to keep them warm. We continued to visit Nirob and his family for two and half years as we built clinics in the region that allowed easy health access for moms and babies. Click the link in our bio to watch Nirob’s amazing journey from malnutrition to a child with a future. . . . . . . . . #causes #donate #activism #nonprofit#dogood #charity #fundraising#socialgood #philanthropy#savethechildren #everylastchild#bangladesh #health #nutrition #newborn
