Supporting brave teachers
The teachers who reach out to engage and inspire children in ravaged towns and refugee camps are extraordinarily brave and committed. In 2012, the IRC trained more than 15,000 educators, helping to bolster education in places like the Democratic Republic of Congo, where an estimated 31 percent of school-age children have never set foot in a classroom. $125 provides a courageous teacher with the books, art supplies and other materials they need to guide children toward a more stable future.
