A chance at a brighter future

  • About this gift

    During a humanitarian emergency and its aftermath, education can help save a young boy’s life. A safe learning environment in places like Congo and Syria can provide children with a sense of normalcy, helps them to heal from trauma and protect them from abuse and exploitation. Being in a classroom gives conflict-affected children hope as they continue to learn and plan for a brighter future.

    In 2015, the IRC helped to educate more than 1.3 million children around the world. $58 can supply the tuition, books and other supplies a boy needs to attend school for a year.


    A Year of School is available in other beautiful designs. Give your favorite.

    Why they'll love a Rescue Gift

    I like being able to donate in my parents' name for birthday, Christmas, Mother's and Father's Day. And they like knowing their gift means something.
