Our Early Steps for School programs focus on the building blocks of early childhood education and literacy for infants and toddlers. Thanks to our program home visits, 1-year-old Khloe now has an early love for books and learning!Help us give kids the best chance to succeed in school and life: http://ow.ly/dCmR30dFuHz
At 12 years old, Omar* suddenly found himself having to work to support his family after his father was killed in the Syria conflict. Every day he works in a dangerous fuel market where he uses his bucket and sponge to soak up spilled fuel, squeeze it into his bucket and sell what he has collected. Hundreds of children like Omar are forced to work every day. We’re helping many of them return to school by supporting their families with food baskets, conducting awareness-raising campaigns and reopening schools—but there are still so many children who are being forced to give up their education and to work in incredibly dangerous environments. You can help support our mission: http://ow.ly/BnNE30dFuvG

Our SummerBoost camp helps combat reading & mathematics loss during summer months with fun and enriching activities. We #KeepKidsLearnung by offering a full day of activities, learning, reading and skill building to keep them on the road to success.
Najma, 9, is a reading buddy in our Literacy Boost initiative. She was paired with a student who needed extra help reading and now they spend time outside the classroom practicing together. Our three-pronged approach to the program includes assessments, teacher training and community action to significantly improve a child’s core reading skills. We believe that more children will learn to read if they are well supported to do so in their classroom and beyond the school walls.
Children need motivation to continue learning in the summer months. Check out 10 children's books for summer reading at the link in our bio.

Many of the children who have made it through the conflict in Iraq appear to be deeply traumatized, left numb and emotionless by the horrors they witnessed inside Mosul and during their flight to safety. Even with adequate help, they will likely take years to heal. Psychological support will be absolutely critical to ensure children like 2-year-old Suha* have a chance at a healthy future. You can help- learn how at the link in our bio. *Name changed for protection
