Eager studen receives textbooks in Cambodia.

Give An Education

In Cambodia, poverty forces many children to enter the labor market as young as 12 years old. Without education, a life of poverty is imminent.

Free classes offer these children a way out, but most families are too poor to provide the proper supplies.

Buses Urgently Needed for Safety of Afghan Schoolgirls
For a girl living in Afghanistan, going to school can be dangerous. In early November 2008, two men sprayed acid into the faces of girls as they walked to school, causing serious injury. In an effort to prevent further attacks, the Safe Ride to School program was created to purchase a school bus and hire a driver. Five years later, the bus is breaking down and we need to purchase another to ensure the girls of Mirwais Mena School get to class safely.

This Gift That Gives More helps a young Afghan girl get a safe ride to school by contributing to the purchase of a new bus.
