Educating Children at Risk in Burma

Requested by

Entrust Foundation

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

The world is a place of great need. Sadly, most of the heartache and pain is unseen by us and therefore never properly addressed. The Entrust Foundation helps the poorest of the poor, forgotten people on this planet. With over 30 years of experience, we have identified 4 major Causes, which if addressed will make the world a happier, safer and better place to live.

One of these causes is Educating Children at Risk, 1 billion people cannot read or write their name! Education brings freedom and opens up a world of opportunities…

Overview:

Nearly a billion people entered the 21st century unable to read a book or sign their names. Whilst education in its nature looks different around the world, the opportunity to be educated should not.

What is your project and how will it help?

The Need:
Based on enrolment data, about 72 million children of primary school age in the developing world were not in school. From Africa across to Asia millions of youth have not got the opportunity to transform their world through education. Education allows an individual to administrate their own life, and the opportunity to influence their communities with regards to politics, economics, agriculture, health, & much more.

The number of children in the world is 2.2 billion; the number of children living in poverty is 1 billion that is every second child living in poverty. Through holistic education these figure can change. Without education many youth are at continued risk of being taken advantage of through trafficking & child slavery.

“Less than one per cent of what the world spent every year on weapons was needed to put every child into school by the year 2000 and yet it didn’t happen”

Where your funding can make a diference:

Funding allocated to the cause of educating children at risk will go toward cutting edge projects across the globe that;

Empower children to be informed about political, economic, & physical health & sustainability
Allow Parents to work without putting their children at risk of child slavery & trafficking
Increase the future opportunities for youth in the forgotten corners of the world
Bring hope to families & communities through seeing their children engaged in schooling
Allow education to be accessible within communities not causing further risk and separation to families through sending youth away to study
Empower children & their families stuck in hopeless cycles of poverty at high risk of abuse, trafficking or prostitution.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

Make a change in the lives of others, your financial partnership can see the following Life Change:

Increase knowledge equals increased power over one’s own life
Increased healthy work & financial opportunities
Decreased opportunity for illegal activity such as child slavery & trafficking

Please detail the resources that you need.
