In rural Malawi, access to clean water is limited. As a result, children often get sick, miss school and fall behind in their education. With support from our child sponsors, we provide school-based handwashing stations, clean water and soap as part of our lessons on good hygiene. In turn, children often teach their families about handwashing, which can help keep whole communities safe from preventable disease. As a sponsor, you can help us ensure children in Malawi are able to stay healthy, in class and learning- link in bio.
Future generations of children should experience a cleaner, greener planet. How will you make an impact? #EarthDay

“Syria, my country,
Don’t think that I forgot you, because you are inside me.
I miss you so much, I miss your aroma, your sand.
You will be forever in my heart.
My country, wait for me.” – a poem by Aseel
When 9-year-old Aseel’s* family fled Syria, she was forced to leave her grandparents and friends behind. Now she’s one of 193,000 asylum seekers living in Egypt.

Last year, 5.9 million children died before reaching their fifth birthday— mostly from preventable causes and because access to basic health services is limited. Significant progress has been made globally to reduce the rate of child deaths, but more needs to be done to speed up this reduction and to prevent children dying unnecessarily. In Bangladesh, we’re building and equipping lifesaving health clinics to give children like 4-year-old Mukta a better chance to survive, thrive, and reach their full potential.
