Education for Children


Provide education for children. Your gift can help pay school fees or provide essentials like school uniforms, textbooks, backpacks, and school supplies — helping ensure that children in poverty can receive what they need to get an education.

Tragically, 75 million primary-school-age children are not in school. Without the money for basic education supplies like pencils and paper, children from developing countries are often turned away from school because they can’t fully participate.

In Ethiopia, Shelma missed a whole year of school because his parents didn’t have enough money to buy his school materials. “I could not go to school,” he recalls. “I was so sad, I was crying.” Shelma wasn’t alone, as fewer than half the children in Ethiopia receive an education.

Thankfully, World Vision provided the books and other class materials Shelma needed. Today he’s back in school and pursuing his dream of becoming a teacher. “I feel much stronger now,” says Shelma. “I [have] hope for my future.”

You can help more children like Shelma get the education they need. Please donate today.

We promise to honor your generosity and use your donation in the most effective way possible. The needs shown in this catalog reflect World Vision projects at the time of writing and the suggested donation amounts are based on periodic surveys of the countries we serve. Each item is representative of the gift category in which it appears and donations will be used to provide assistance where it is needed most within that category or to address a similar need.

The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
