What school means to a child in need
Watch this UNICEF video, and be reminded of the value of school in a child’s life
In Canada, children and youth often complain about going to school, but there’s a completely different mindset in the countries where we work — one that’s depicted in the UNICEF video below about a child wishing to go to school.
“I have to help my family with money. Mommy says she can’t afford to send me to school — I really want to go to school…. I want to learn to read and spell,” says the child narrator in the video.
At Christian Children’s Fund of Canada, we believe education is essential to a child’s success in life, and we work to ensure more have access to school, rather than having to work or be forced into an early marriage.
Watch the video to hear one child’s perspective on life without school.
