It’s Giving Tuesday on 30 November. A global day of giving and unity. Today we want to give thanks to you and make this a day of gratitude.
Amidst the constant upheaval of the pandemic, you're making real strides for children. We're so excited to tell you how you've supported Edith*.
You Gave Her Back Her Learning
Six-year-old Edith lives with her family in a refugee settlement in Uganda. With schools closed, she’s been learning at home – with the help of community radio lessons you’ve helped to fund!
We all know education is so important to help children develop. And, during the lockdowns, radio lessons are a safe way to keep children learning during the pandemic.
Edith is supported in her lessons by Save the Children’s Knight*, who sets up the radio at homes and villages. Edith enjoys her learning lessons and is proud that she can now sing the alphabet. Who wouldn’t – it’s a brilliant achievement for a six-year-old!
Watch this short video to see the power of radio for yourself.
A Champion For Children
It means so much that you help children like Edith continue learning, even during the pandemic. Thank you for supporting children when they need you most.
You're a champion for children and we're so grateful to have you as part of the team!
