In Kyaka II refugee settlement in Uganda, we support teachers from our early years programme to set up their own businesses by providing small business loans. Read about how this initiative works and meet Martha, who used her £40 loan to set up a thriving sewing business.
An artillery attack in Myanmar has completely destroyed the community of Munglai Hkyet, in Woi Chyai, one of the internally displaced persons (IDP) camps we support in Kachin State.
At least 29 people, including 11 children and a two-month old baby were killed, with many more injured. We are deeply saddened that two young children from our preschool centre in Munglai Hkyet were among the victims.
In Lebanon, our partners, Triumphant Mercy provide education for Syrian refugee children in a dedicated school in Zahle. The curriculum includes vocational activities which the children love, but participation in these classes has often perpetuated gender stereotypes. We’re delighted to share how we are beginning to break down these gender barriers to open up opportunities for girls and boys.
