Children on the Edge are delighted to give a little wonder with The Body Shop this festive season, funding over 195,000 days of education for refugee children.
Children on the Edge is delighted to be partnering with The Body Shop this festive season. Every time you buy a gift from The Body Shop, (in-store, online or from your local Body Shop at Home consultants) you’ll be creating brighter futures for refugee children around the globe. This Christmas The Body Shop will be donating to Children on the Edge from the sale of every pre-filled gift, hoping to raise up to £100,000. This support will help to fund over 195,000 days of education for refugee children across Uganda, Bangladesh and Lebanon.
Funding 195,000 days of Education
Every child has the right to an education, but refugee children often don’t have any schools to go to. 68% of primary age refugee children can’t access education (UNHCR). Even when refugee children do go to school, it’s hard for them to learn. Classrooms are often crowded and lessons are not always taught in their own languages. They can also experience discrimination and harsh treatment from teachers and other students.
Children fleeing conflict and persecution need a place where they can feel safe and cared for. They need more than just the ability to survive, they need protective spaces where they can thrive. In our colourful classrooms, refugee children in Bangladesh, Lebanon and Uganda, children can learn, play and discover how to be children again.
Support through The Body Shop’s ‘Give A Little Wonder’ campaign this Christmas will help fund 195,000 days of education, to build brighter futures for refugee children.
