Normal is children denied their right to education

Education is a powerful tool that can help children unleash their inherent power. But globally, 1 in 5 children are not in school. These children are being denied the opportunity to reach their full potential and pursue their dreams.

It’s time to change that.

How? By defying normal and helping all children access quality and inclusive education.

Why donate?

Because inability to access education makes children more vulnerable to diseases, violence, exploitation, child marriage and more.

How will it help?

Your donation will help send 1,000 children to school and support our work to advance children’s rights and equality for girls around the world.

Where does the money go?

Funds raised from this campaign will go towards sending 1,000 South Sudanese refugee children living in Uganda, to school. Additional money raised will support Plan International’s projects in need of urgent funds.
