Give the joy of education this Chinese New Year!

 

Education is every child’s right and their path to a brighter future. Worldwide, there are millions of children who would love to learn, but can’t due to poverty and COVID-19. This year, the International Day of Education is just a week before Chinese New Year; celebrate both occasions with us by helping children experience the JOY of learning – children like Amerah.

 

Amerah's story

Amerah, from Lanao del Norte, Philippines, is a happy learner. “I love writing and colouring,” she shared. Said her mother Sittie: “She is very eager to learn. When her face-to-face class was cut short [due to COVID-19], she would ask why she had to stop going to school. I explained, but that did not take away her enthusiasm. She would go to her siblings and ask them to teach her how to read and write.”

World Vision provided Amerah and nearly a thousand children in her community with notebooks, pens, bags and more. We also worked closely with local schools to support teachers and students during the pandemic. “Thank you for my school supplies. When I grow up, I want to be a doctor or a teacher,” Amerah said with a smile.

Give the Joy of Learning to Children!

By supporting World Vision’s work in education, you can give children like Amerah much-needed school supplies, train teachers to provide a stimulating education, and equip schools to support their students in learning.

Says Owen Yap, World Vision Malaysia Advocate for Education: “A good education helps children to be happy learners. There’s no better gift than the joy of learning.”

 

This Chinese New Year (and International Day of Education), give an Angpow for Education that will help children enJOY learning at all times! Or give lasting joy to children, families and communities by sponsoring a child and helping them access education, clean water and more.

 

World Vision Malaysia wishes you a joyous Chinese New Year with your friends and family!
