Build a Two Room School

Gives 1 school
Gift Description:
Your gift builds a two-room classroom block, ensuring that education is available to children in rural and impoverished communities. Education is the best way to lift communities out of poverty. Every additional year a child spends in school increases his or her future earnings by an average of 10%, lifting both the income of the individual and the standard of living for the community. Giving young girls access to education delays average marriage age and first childbirth age, increases access to healthcare for entire families, and raises household income. By providing a place for children to learn, you give them the chance to break out of poverty and bring their communities with them.
