    Education is a core part of childhood. School is where children learn, make friends and build a foundation for a good life. But approximately 263 million children around the world are out of school due to ethnicity, gender, or because they have a disability. For example, about 15 million girls of primary school age will never have the opportunity to learn. By investing in kids’ education, we can eliminate the gap in opportunity, reduce chances of an #EndofChildhood, and contribute to improved childhood expectancy.

    Thanks to you, Julia* is all smiles as she gets ready to start school at a #Partner4Children supported learning center for refugee children in Turkey. Born the same year war erupted in Syria, Julia has never known anything but a life of fear, hunger and conflict. Finally, her family escaped to Turkey, where over 1 million refugee children are living. With the support of our #Partner4Children community, Julia is recovering from her trauma and becoming a happy, energetic child who dreams of a brighter future. *Child’s name changed for protection.

    9-year-old Aseel* has seen so much hardship in her short life. After her home in Syria was destroyed, her family fled to Egypt. To address the unique needs of vulnerable children like her, we’ve launched a Child Sponsorship program specifically for refugees in Egypt. This program helps ensure children like Aseel are able to get back their lives— and futures. This #WorldRefugeeDay, don’t miss your chance to change a child’s life- link in bio. *Name changed for protection

    In Jordan, students at our kindergarten class within Za’atari Refugee Camp participate in our Healing and Education through the Arts (HEART) program, an arts-based approach to providing psychosocial support for children affected by serious or chronic stress. Half of the world’s 21.3 million refugees are children who’ve had to leave everything behind to escape conflict, violence and persecution. We’re doing whatever it takes to make sure they can have the future every child deserves. You can help us & @mbchopeinsta give hope to these children- link in bio. #WorldRefugeeDay

    Uli, a farmer in Indonesia, knows how important education is for his 4-year-old daughter, Tika. Uli is one of the many parents who has seen the sponsorship-supported kindergarten in his community make a big difference in his child’s life. He also attends sponsorship parenting classes, where he learns how to communicate with his children in better ways. Now, he and his daughter are closer than ever. “I will do whatever it takes for them to get the education that they need... It is fulfilling to experience the better connection between Tika and I. I feel like I am a good father to her now.” Read more about Uli and Tika on our blog: blog.savethechildren.org

    15-year-old Aisha’s* parents separated when she was very young and she never knew her father growing up. But when she was in grade 5, her father showed up and told her that he had made an agreement to marry her off to a friend of his who was older. Aisha’s mother protested but her father secretly took her to another town where he forced Aisha to marry the older man. Within months, she became pregnant; and although she is now divorced, she feels she cannot return to school because she has a child and is too old to go back to grade 5. Millions of young girls are forced into marriage—robbing them of their freedom & safety. Take action at endofchildhood.org (link in bio) #EndofChildhood *Name changed for protection

    We can improve #ChildhoodExpectancy by letting girls take control of their futures–that starts with ending child marriage. #EndofChildhood
