FOR MANY, THE NEAREST SCHOOL IS A TWO-HOUR WALK AWAY.
As per the World Health Organisation (WHO), 264 million children around the world are not in school. They are ready and eager to learn, but many children have no school in their village. Meaning that children are faced with the option of walking for hours and arriving at school exhausted from the long (and unsafe) walk, or simply not attending at all. Either way, children are unable to fully benefit from an education.
UK Islamic Mission transforms existing local buildings into schools so that children in rural areas can easily go to school and improve their lives with the gift of learning. You can help to make learning more enjoyable, comfortable and accessible for children. Thousands have already benefitted from our programme, but there are many more children to reach.
