Education is a vital human right

Education is a vital human right, enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the United Nations Convention on Rights of the Child.”* Yet every year, millions of children are still denied their right to an education.

Why is this a big deal? The Global Partnership for Education puts it this way:

Education reduces poverty, boosts economic growth and increases income. It increases a person’s chances of having a healthy life, reduces maternal deaths, and combats diseases such as HIV and AIDS. Education can promote gender equality, reduce child marriage, and promote peace. In sum, education is one of the most important investments a country can make in its people and its future.” 

As you can see, education is SO important. As the year comes to an end, we at The Boaz Project are looking for people who are just as passionate about orphans and education as we are.

You have read stories about the children we work with, hearing of their dreams and goals. You also know the challenges these orphans face. By helping an orphan overcome the lack of education, you are helping him or her have a brighter future and a better tomorrow.

Today, you can assist a child from one of our homes by giving him or her an education that will help them not only achieve these goals and dreams but also fulfill their basic human right to an education. 

The average cost of educating an Indian or Kenyan child for one year is $570, but it can change their lives and even the trajectory of their families for generations to come.

So please demonstrate kindness to orphans once again by making a generous donation today. They’re ready—eager, even—to do the hard work. They just need your helping hand. You can help orphans receive their human right of an education by going to: www.boazproject.org/education 

Thank you for demonstrating your compassion in such a tangible way!

Believing in miracles,

April Jurgensen
