Join us to give a Step Up some of the most vulnerable children in the world?
Ethiopia faces one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world.
Bordering the war-torn country of South Sudan, Ethiopia has become Africa’s largest refugee-hosting country, providing refuge for hundreds of thousands of people fleeing civil war, ethnic conflict and famine. As the humanitarian situation worsens, many refugees are walking for weeks to reach safety and aid. The Gambella region has the largest refugee population with thousands of refugee children, many who are unaccompanied with no parents. These children and youth are desperate to further their education and find opportunities to make a better life for themselves.
Step Up in partnership with LWF and the Ethiopian Government Administration for Refugees (ARRA), will work with a makeshift primary school in the Gambella settlement to provide children with summer educational activities, health and hygiene workshops and vocational training. The camp will run in August, and will provide a safe and productive learning environment for children and youth during the holidays.
We are raising funds that will go towards running the programme and purchasing much needed educational supplies.
£30 will enable one child to join our programme.
£100 will sponsor educational supplies for one class on the programme.
£200 will sponsor a suitcase of English books to get to the refugee camp for the Step Up library.
£500 will sponsor building the bookcases for the Step Up Library.
£1800 will sponsor a weekly after school club for children, to run for 1 year.
