As the new academic year is about to begin, Qatar Charity has launched the ‘Education Makes it Possible’ campaign to support educational projects within and outside the State of Qatar. The campaign is expected to benefit around 100,000 students, both male and female, in 38 countries worldwide.
The campaign comes to support the right of children to education, which is one of Qatar Charity’s strategic areas of work, in a time when the number of those deprived of basic education is on rise in many regions across the globe, especially in countries going through crises and natural disasters.
The campaign aims to cover the costs of school bags, school uniforms, and laptops, as well as tuition fees. Additionally, bicycles will be provided to students in Yemen, and scholarships will be offered to students in Djibouti and The Gambia. Moreover, the campaign includes building, maintaining, and rehabilitating 66 elementary and secondary schools and vocational training centers.
Besides, educational projects will be implemented within Qatar for orphaned students and those belonging to low-income families. These projects include providing school bags, school uniforms, and laptops, and covering tuition fees for the students, in addition to covering transportation fees and other expenses. A total of 4,510 students will benefit from these projects.
The countries targeted by the campaign include Nigeria, Ghana, Somalia, Burkina Faso, Turkey, Tunisia, Kyrgyzstan, Mali, Morocco, Sudan, Kenya, Ethiopia, Montenegro, Senegal, South Africa, Togo, Benin, Burundi, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Palestine, Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Lebanon, Yemen, Jordan, Mauritania, Niger, Djibouti, Sri Lanka, The Gambia, Tanzania, and Ivory Coast.
Qatar Charity urges the generous people of Qatar to support the campaign to help meet the basic educational needs of the students. This will allow them to elevate their knowledge and understanding, assist them in improving their lives, contributing to the social, economic, and health development of their communities, and turning their harsh reality into a safer and more prosperous future.
Benefactors can donate to the ‘Education Makes it Possible’ campaign through Qatar Charity’s website (qch.qa/edu), app (qch.qa/appen), branches and collectors available in malls and commercial centers, in addition to requesting for a “Home Collector” and dialing 44920000 to donate.
