Millions of children lack the education, support, and opportunity they need to thrive.

The obstacles they face—poverty, hunger, discrimination, trauma, and school systems that do not
provide them with the education they need—are overwhelming. And when millions of children aren’t
learning, it affects us all—perpetuating poverty, dividing societies, and weakening economies.

All Children Deserve:

  • Services that support healthy development
  • Education systems designed to meet diverse needs
  • Advocates who challenge the injustices they face
  • The tools to navigate—and lead—the world they'll inherit

 

 

To change the status quo for children, we need leadership

Meaningful, sustainable change requires leaders who are rooted in their local culture, challenges, and opportunities and who believe in the potential of children and their communities.
