Vietnam is emerging from its worst drought in 90 years as a result of the strongest El Nino on record. It’s affected an estimated 2 million people, including Bdai, who reduced her meals to 1 per day to be able to feed her children. After her crops failed, Bdai began collecting and selling manure to pay off her debts, purchase fertilizer for her field and buy medicine for her daughter. We helped the family by giving them enough rice to last a month and distributing water filters to make drinking water safe. Help us make a difference for #EveryLastChild: http://ow.ly/qUum301uNMz

Fruit kabobs! That’s the kind of nutritious food you help us provide to kids like 3-year-old Emy from Bolivia.

Fruit kabobs are more than just a yummy treat. They help children like Emy avoid anemia and other health problems, helping them stay in school and reach their full potential. Join us today and become a #Partner4Children to make a difference: http://ow.ly/SzXh300azc5

In Northwest Kenya, girls of Irine’s culture are generally married off at a young age in exchange for a bride price that the prospective husband pays. But Irine’s parents made a decision that she would go to school and receive an education instead. Not all girls in the community share the same fate—many girls Irine’s age do not go to school.

Early marriage limits education options for girls and prevents them from reaching their full potential. We’re committed to reaching #EveryLastChild so all girls get a fair chance at an education. Learn more: http://ow.ly/qUum301uNMz

A young Syrian girl sits outside her tent in Za'atari Refugee Camp, Jordan. Refugees have been pouring into Jordan in their thousands to escape the violence in Syria. They now live in tents in the desert of northern Jordan where conditions are harsh and camp authorities are underfunded and struggling to meet the basic needs of the overwhelming numbers of refugees arriving each day.

Over 65% per cent of camp inhabitants are children. Within Za’atari, children can attend Save the Children-supported early education classes and play in our Child-Friendly Spaces. We also provide child protection and psycho-social support for refugee children at many of our programs within the camp for displaced peoples.

9-year-old Gerald carries his younger sister, 3-year-old Xyril, near their home in the Philippines. When Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines in November of 2013, Gerald encouraged his family to evacuate their home and go to a nearby school, where they sheltered as the storm destroyed the area around them. When they returned home, they found their house had been destroyed.

We supplied Gerald’s family with supplies to restore their home, and helped repair classrooms and hygiene facilities at his primary school. Today, Gerald is a member of the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Club and helps promote hygiene in his school and community. You can help us be there for #EveryLastChild like Gerald: http://ow.ly/qahg301PYAP

Last year, our sponsors helped ensure that 100% of children who participated in our early education #ChildSponsorship programs in Honduras graduated to primary school. With your support, we will continue to do whatever it takes to keep kids around the world learning— and smiling! Sponsor a child today: http://ow.ly/O5sg303C3yM #WhyISponsor

"We didn't leave #Syria because we were poor. We left Syria because we needed an education,” Rula* told us at our Child Friendly Space in #Lesvos. She was only 4 years old when an airstrike hit her school in Syria, killing most of her friends and classmates. She hasn’t been to school since. Read her story:

While a recent drought ravaged Vietnam’s crops and its people’s livelihoods, 4-year-old Nien’s parents would eat one meal a day or go without food so their children could eat. We helped by giving the family enough rice to last a month so that any money they were able to earn could be spent on seeds, soil and insecticides to get their livelihoods back on track. We also trucked in emergency water and filters to the worst-affected areas to ensure safe drinking water at homes and in schools.

Over 400 million children worldwide live in extreme poverty—on less than $1.90 each day—often pushing students to leave their education behind to find jobs and help provide for themselves and their families. Students Rebuild, a program of the Bezos Family Foundation, is partnering with us to help youth around the globe change their lives and lift themselves into a better future.

Join us and take the Youth Uplift Challenge: for every hand you make and send in, the Bezos Family Foundation will donate $1.90—up to $500,000—to our programs empowering youth in Nicaragua and Indonesia. Learn more at studentsrebuild.org/youthuplift

3-year-old Emmanuel loves his book bag!

Did you know that by age 4, children from low-income families are up to 18 months behind their peers developmentally? Our #Partner4Children community is helping to change this reality. With their dedicated support, 85% of children enrolled in our early education program score well on pre-literacy tests by age 5.
