Join me and CARE in sending letters of hope to encourage students in developing countries to pursue their educational dreams. #SimplySaid
CARE is a global humanitarian organization that fights poverty by empowering girls and women and providing life saving assistance in emergencies.
While the topic of education is often discussed here in the U.S., it’s not because poor children are excluded from the opportunity. Our public school systems are free. I’d like to introduce you to some children in developing countries who are often unable to attend school because of of barriers and obstacles. In some developing countries, girls are expected to quit school at a young age and devote themselves to household chores.
Many girls don’t have educational opportunities to pursue their dreams, like Bridget who wants to be a doctor. It’s humanitarian organizations like CARE who have the resources with your help to make dreams come true for these girls.
Bridget wants to be a doctor when she grows up. She lives in a community where the nearest health clinic is a 6 mile walk one way. Can you imagine being too sick to move and can’t get medical help because you can’t walk six miles? Bridget wants to become a doctor one day so she can build a clinic in her community and help people. Can you imagine a child whose thoughts are to meet the needs of her community? We can help Bridget.
What you can do right now? Send a letter of hope!
