Back to School

Share with your friends

Every day, Laxmi crawls over
rocky paths and mountain
streams to get to school.

How many kids would crawl
to school if they had to?

Help get 1,000 kids – living in poverty with disability
– back to school.

You can rescue one of these forgotten children. Help us find them.
Help us give them hope and a better life. All we need is for you to pledge.

2 ways to help now!

Help care for a child. Pledge your email.

Every email pledge we receive is another step closer to school for a child like Laxmi.

Every 1,000 email pledges, will fund one child’s complete care – from finding a child, providing surgery, right through to getting that child ready for school. A generous sponsor is willing to redeem your pledges with dollars everytime we reach 1,000 pledges. The cost of a child's complete care is $360.

When we reach 1,000 pledges, we will take you on a journey – a miracle journey of hope. You’ll be helping children to walk, see, hear, learn, be all that they can be. You will see the difference you made in a child’s life.

Make more of an impact.
Share the joy of helping get a child back to school. Spread the word, share this page with your friends.

The difference you can make in a life in 12 short months is dramatic.

First, you will send outreach teams to villages, jungles, deserts and unmapped, mud-bricked houses – to find children with disabilities who are hidden away.

Next, you will provide a child’s life-changing, often life-saving, care. You’ll fund the surgery, rehabilitation and medical care that will restore a child’s ability.

Finally, you’ll walk alongside that child until he or she is well on the way to a full life. A full life means learning and developing – whether that learning happens in school or, if they’re not capable of going to school, at home.
