For many children, education is the only way out of poverty - both for themselves and for their families. Developing countries are facing a serious lack of funding and limited resources. As a result, more than 400 million children are left without desks, chairs, and adequate learning tools in classrooms.
Every child should go to school
Imdad Relief Foundation believes that every child should have the right to free and secure education, and we are working hard to make this a reality. One of our goals is to provide primary school education in a safe environment, to as many children as possible.
By working with vulnerable communities and low-resource schools, expanding and building new schools, we help the children of the world overcome barriers, reduce inequalities and social problems.
Furniture, books and equipment
Together with our supporters, we have provided proper furniture, books, and school equipment for classrooms where children are otherwise forced to sit on the ground. We have built and renovated schools in Gambia, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. With the help of donations, supporters, and our volunteers, we have been able to offer a better and more comfortable learning environment that promotes concentration, learning ability, and improved teaching.
Education for refugees
Imdad Relief Foundation has expanded the school capacity in refugee camps by renovating school buildings and providing staff with more classrooms to teach. In collaboration with Minoriteten Bemanning AS, we have renovated the Iqra Academy school in the Kutupalong camp in Bangladesh.
This has expanded the level of education, and the school is now able to facilitate eight years at the primary school level and four years at the upper secondary level. This is also the only school in the world's largest refugee camp that offers higher education.
By expanding the level of education, we ensure that more children have the opportunity to go to school. Renovation of schools and implementation of important facilities such as clean drinking water and access to sanitary toilets is an important tool when we want to create a safe and engaging environment for learning.
Breaking the cycle of poverty
Through our work in countries such as Gambia, Bangladesh, and Pakistan, we have offered a better education system to different villages and allowed more children to learn to read and write.
Education is one of the most important ways out of poverty, and with your donations and the time of our volunteers, we provide thousands of children with the resources needed to build a dignified life for themselves in the future. Education is the key to children's future and the solution that breaks the cycle of poverty.
