Meet Tabarak. She lives in Iraq, where conflict has denied her and millions of other children their right to education. But thanks to UNICEF’s work to rehab 576 schools, today she is back where she belongs — with her friends in school.
Why Donate to UNICEF? It’s the Smart Way to Make Your Money Go Further for Children
UNICEF delivers: Last year, 12.5 million children in 250,000 classrooms received learning materials. 48,000 communities were assisted with school management, planning and inclusive education training
UNICEF stands up for children who face the greatest barriers: Out of the $1.2 billion UNICEF spent on education last year, $46 million went toward girls’ education, $11 million toward helping children with disabilities and $62 million for life skills and vocational training for teens
UNICEF knows how to level the playing field: Often it’s the cost of books, uniforms and transportation that keeps children out of school. Cash transfer programs to families have been hugely successful in getting children into the classroom, where they belong
UNICEF supports teachers, too: Teacher training and curriculum development are creating classrooms where students of all abilities and ethnicities feel welcome as they build essential math and literacy skills
