Education is the most formidable tool in transforming our world. It reduces poverty, increases a person's chances of having a healthy life, reduces maternal deaths, and fights diseases. Furthermore, Education can promote gender equality, reduce child marriage, empowers women and promote peace.
More than 72 million children around the world remain unschooled. The Sub-Saharan Africa is severely affected with over 32 million children primary school age remaining uneducated.

EMPASH COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
STUDENT AND CLASSROOM RESOURCE
Help Build a School
october 23rd was a great day when over 30 students graduated from kindergarten in Empash community…
Their parents watched with excitements as their teacher, Ms Natalie, conducted the closing ceremony to end the year. Empash community has no school and so Miss Natalie volunteered to teach kids from her village, one of them being her own daughter. She has been using a church that her husband pastors as school during the week. The heartbreak came when they learned that they cannot come back next school year and they have to enroll in a different school for the next grade. Reason: the church is only one room and cannot hold two grades at a time.
With no roads, the kids as young as 6 years will have to walk to the closes school through the bushes to get to school about 3-5 miles away. Many of these children will drop out of school because they won’t make the trek. You can make a significant difference by helping us build a school and transform the Empash village through education. We need $25K to make this happen.
Together, we can make this a reality
