11-year-old Arjun from India is an orphan who has never been to school. He desperately wants to learn, but for the past 2 years he’s worked in the brick kilns by breaking up coals and carrying bricks. He recently began attending a Save the Children-funded education center when he isn’t working.

He hopes to be able to attend school once his reading and writing are up to par. In the meantime, we’re visiting Arjun at the education center where he receives basic literacy and numeracy training and is able to play in a safe environment with other kids his age. Help us reach more children like Arjun: http://ow.ly/kg4T3027yEY

Riwa* is an 11-year-old girl from Aleppo, Syria, where she went to school until the fourth grade. She currently lives in a tent with her family at a refugee camp in northern Greece where she attends our Child-Friendly Space.

Child refugees stranded in Greece have been out of school for an average of one and a half years, risking a generation which has been denied the right to an education. Our CFS provides access to education for children caught in the midst of long-term conflict so kids like Riwa* can continue learning.

We’re delighted to see a smile on Karim’s* face as he plays with friends at a camp for displaced peoples in Iraq. The 6-year-old lost both parents and a brother to an explosion when conflict broke out in their hometown. Karim and his remaining family members fled to this camp two years ago, where he attends our Child-Friendly Space and receives care and psychosocial support. Our CFS serves as an outlet for children to play, release stress and talk about their experience with trained emergency staff to help kids like Karim work through their trauma.

Instakula, 8, and Hawantu, 10, are excited to learn with their new education kits from Save the Children.

Although Sierra Leone is now Ebola-free, the outbreak devastated its education system. Our ‪#‎Partner4Children‬ community is helping children like Instakula and Hawantu get back to learning.

6-year-old Arwa* and her family are among the 3.1 displaced people inside Iraq. Due to armed conflict, the family of 7 were forced to flee their home and have lived at a camp for displaced people since last year. Like many IDPs, her family had a very difficult journey getting to the camp after living amidst violence—but now that they’re here, Arwa and her brother attend our Child-Friendly Space where they can learn, play and just be a kid again.

#TBT: The 2014 #Ebola outbreak claimed the lives of over 11,000 people and left thousands of children orphans, like 15-year-old Samuel. By the time the virus reached his village in Sierra Leone, Samuel had already suffered a number of tragic losses—but he was about to lose so much more. Read about how we helped him on his road to recovery: http://ow.ly/PkAf302pi8E

Our children are our nation’s greatest resource, and we must invest in them to create a brighter future for all people. Our advocacy arm, Save the Children Action Network, will be at the GOP and Democratic conventions this week and next to represent the needs of children to ensure that our country’s next president will #InvestInKids. Follow the conversation.

We work with local communities and governments around the world to ensure kids like 3-year-old Monyndom from Cambodia have access to early learning opportunities, which is so critical to development in the first 5 years of a child’s life. Please donate now to help us reach more children like Monyndom: http://ow.ly/kg4T3027yEY
