Our work in education
Our shelters provide a learning environment, empowering displaced children for a brighter future ahead.
Education is a right that should be accessible to all, from supporting early childhood development, to technical and vocational training for adults. We help our partners realise their education programs to make sure children can go back to school after being forced to flee. The design of our shelters can be adapted to create large and small learning environments.

“Here, the school is close to my home. I go there with my sister and my cousins, and I have made friends to play with. When I grow up I want to become a doctor so I can treat sick people in need.”
