Celebrating Chinese New Year with resilience!

Help a child mooo...ve forward boldly!

As we leave behind a particularly difficult 2020 and get a fresh start in 2021, we can demonstrate strength and resilience, ‘mooo…ving’ ahead boldly this ‘牛’ (New) Year and taking on each new challenge as and when they come.

Better still, we can enable children living in dire need to do the same!

For the most vulnerable children, it takes great strength of will to push past the many obstacles caused by poverty. A proven way to give them a leg up is through Education! However, children still face many challenges when it comes to education:

  • Only 17% of children in low-income countries are enrolled in pre-school1
  • 38% of children old enough to have finished primary school don’t have the skills they need to survive in life2
  • Across 35 countries, humanitarian crises have disrupted the education of 75 million children3
  • 40% of students around the world are taught in a language they do not speak or understand4

1,2,4 UNESCO 3 UNICEF

These challenges are great, but not insurmountable. By helping a child to go to school, you’ll equip them with knowledge, confidence and vital life skills that will empower them to move towards a brighter future with hope and boldness.

But don’t just take our word for it. Watch this video and hear from our Advocate for Education Owen Yap about the power of learning!
