Child-Centred Spaces Getting Children Back To School
This assistance is already helping children like Nazwa, who found the support she needed at one of ChildFund’s Child-Centred Spaces.
Her village was overwhelmed by the disasters, and she arrived at the Child-Centred Space worried about her friends and neighbours. She was also concerned about her teachers. Her school was one of the 2,736 across the country that were damaged.
“I want to write and learn maths again,” she said. “I love maths.”
Generous ChildFund supporters are helping provide at least 10 child-centred spaces to children like Nazwa, affected by the earthquake and tsunami so they can continue their education.
With so many schools and communities damaged, Bridgette says this is a critical time for children.
Emergencies can force children to leave school, and the longer the recovery takes the less likely they are to return.
