Every child deserves a chance to Learn to Grow and to Lead
The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that "everyone has the right to an education." Unfortunately, education is still a distant dream for many. Nearly 113 million children are not able to attend primary school. And 264 million children who might be attending secondary schools (the equivalent of high schools) do not. Around one billion adults lack one of the most basic skills taught in schools – literacy.
Every child deserves a chance to learn and become an educated member of society. Education is of utmost importance in helping solve many of the world's ills including poverty, human trafficking, and health issues such as AIDS and malaria. Children have a better chance of learning if they don't have to worry about where their next meal is coming from, how to pay for school tuition, who is going to provide for their shelter, their school uniforms, their healthcare. We help organizations by providing funds for unmet needs so that children can feel secure in their quest for an education.
Help Fund the Helper's Farm
The Helpers Farm is the sustainability plan for the Children Helpers Foundation. By establishing an income stream to pay school fees for the impoverished children they support, they can decrease their reliance on outside donors. CHF owns 10 acres of land which will be cultivated for the production of vegetable crops and sold in the local marketplace. Other objectives include the creation of jobs for recent high school graduates (CHF alumni) and supplying fresh produce to 17 schools in the government school feeding program.
