Learn & Teach: Education

uganda - right to educationEducation is for everyone

In accordance to Article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Change for Children believes that Education is a Human Right and essential to building strong, healthy communities. Our Right to Education projects empower cultural ownership, preserve indigenous languages through bilingual learning, train educators, and integrate traditional knowledge.

Fundraise to Build a Classroom

Engage your school in shared global leadership experience. Change for Children’s global projects in the South need your support!   Change for Children is constructing schools in remote indigenous villages located in Central America. Here many indigenous children must travel long distances to receive an education, girls right to education is particularly at risk. It costs $12,500 to build a classroom in BOSAWAS. With CFC, your students, your school has the capacity to help others achieve their right to education!

BOSAWAS School Construction

Two four-room secondary schools (grades 7-12) will be constructed to extend the education of hundreds of youth living in the remote Bosawas Biosphere Reserve — home to the Miskito and Mayagna peoples, currently the most impoverished population in Central America. The schools will be built in the communities of Pamkawas and Tuburus.
