As per the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, education is a fundamental right for everyone worldwide. Regardless of caste, religion, or gender, every child should be able to go to school.
However, as per the 2019 data from the United Nations, more than 216 million students did not go to school that year. The reason behind it includes conflicts, poverty, inequalities, and health concerns. The situation is sad because education brings self-discipline, responsibility, and teamwork to children. When they are not getting it, they are missing a very important aspect of life.
But, thankfully, today, you can help these underprivileged children to get the education they deserve. Here’s how:
Donating to Child Education Charities Campaigns
The best way to help children with their education is by associating with the NGOs that work for them. You can look for campaigns that empower underprivileged women and children on the internet. Make sure that you are finding a genuine NGO that uses your money responsibly. Read about their prior initiatives and look for the images as proof. You should also check whether they are legitimate or authorized. Connect with NGO officials to know about the cause and make donations accordingly.
As poverty and fewer resources are one of the reasons for the lack of education among children worldwide, you can donate to campaigns like people helping people. Such initiatives are created to provide meals, healthcare, education, and other resources to struggling families.
Teach in NGOs
What’s better than giving education yourself if you want to help a children’s education cause? If you can teach or have basic expertise in teaching, you can connect with NGOs that offer education to children. It would be best to teach without charging any money, as the funds could go to the needy. Not only is it a good deed, but you can feel satisfied that you are brightening someone’s future for a better lifestyle.
Another way by which you can help children’s education is by raising awareness amongst less-educated families about their child’s education. There are millions of people who do not know the importance of education. A lot of them do not even consider sending their kids to school.
Even if someone does, it doesn’t take much time for them to back off due to low family income. You can step up and inform them about the importance of education. You can also tell them about campaigns that are ready to support their child’s education.
Donate Stationery, Books, and Clothes
If you know a child who wants to study but does not have enough resources for it, donate. You can buy new books as per their syllabus along with other essentials like pens, pencils, erasers, and other stationery. In addition, you can buy them their school uniform, shoes, and required clothes.
Besides helping the children through resources and money, you can motivate them to study consistently, work hard, and put in effort so that they have a shot at leading happy fulfilling lives. You can be their pillar of strength when they feel like backing off for some reason.
The more you encourage the children, the more they will be able to speak up about their right to education. You can motivate them by giving speeches in NGOs or doing so personally to someone that you know might lack the will to study.
