In Indonesia, poverty is one of the main drivers for parents to place their children in a care institution, resulting in up to half a million children there growing up in orphanages despite 90% of them having at least one living parent. We’re working with the Indonesian government to help families apply for cash assistance so fewer children like 2-month-old Hanif grow up without parents.

4-year-old George* enjoys his apple slice at one of our Head Start early education centers in Mississippi. By age 4, children from low-income families are often already 18 months behind developmentally. Thanks to support our #Partner4Children community, we’re helping these U.S. children grow up healthy, learning and safe – so they have the future they deserve.

Winter climates like snow and wind are inconvenient for us, but they are threateningly harsh for a child caught in the refugee crisis. This winter, children in Lebanon like 3-year-old Salwa* are struggling to keep warm as the elements wreak havoc on refugee camps. In response to the winter storms hitting the Bekaa Valley, we visited refugees to distribute weatherproofing kits, plastic sheets and wooden planks to help support tents in these unpredictable conditions.

The people in this floating Cambodian village do not have land to live on so they live on the water. In spite of this, Neng, Lay and Sun have a grand time riding their wash basins to school.

Wishing you a fun and adventure-filled weekend!

Since conflict broke out in Syria nearly 6 years ago, girls have faced serious obstacles to education. Hundreds of girls have had to leave school for reasons including social customs, economic challenges, lack of resources and more. Together with P&G, we’re providing girls in Jordan with the education and skills they need to learn and grow. Learn more: http://ow.ly/zjQf308aAwZ

New mother Akuol holds her 3-day-old baby girl in the maternity ward of a hospital we run in South Sudan. Conflict that has affected the country for over 3 years finally forced Akuol from her home while she was pregnant. Our hospital provides cost-free healthcare including antenatal, delivery, and post-natal services to mothers like Akuol so babies like hers have the best chance to survive and thrive. Learn more about our lifesaving work for newborns: http://ow.ly/vq5030863DW

Our #Partner4Children supporters helped turn Rani's future around by transforming her classroom and helping her teacher adopt interactive methods for classroom learning. Before entering Save the Children’s Literacy Boost program, Rani was failing school and losing interest in learning. Now, she’s at the top of her class!

Join us today and become a #Partner4Children to make a difference for children like Rani: http://ow.ly/r37630805z3
