Players of People’s Postcode Lottery support over 5,500 refugee children with funding of £250,000 for second year in a row
We are delighted to announce that we will not only be benefitting from a second year of incredible generosity from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery, but funding will be extended to support our work with refugee children in both Lebanon and Uganda.
Throughout 2020, the Postcode Global Trust donated vital funding to the work we support in Lebanon, providing education for over 500 Syrian refugee children. No-one could have predicted just how crucial this funding would be, as the pandemic, economic and political crisis, and the explosion in Beirut caused widespread poverty and hardship for both the refugee community and hundreds of struggling Lebanese families.
Having built relationships with 30 communities in the Kyaka II refugee settlement in western Uganda, Children on the Edge are working alongside them to rebuild and regenerate learning spaces, train refugee teachers, provide microloans and develop an early learning programme for thousands of displaced Congolese children, that is completely owned by local refugees.
