"The more that you read, the more that you know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go"- Dr. Suess
It cannot be stated enough that providing a child an education is one of the most significant steps in raising that child out of poverty. While many quality organizations work to solve the problem of why a child cannot attend school in the first place the organizations featured here are ones that are providing the pencils, papers, desks and safe environment for a child to recieve the best education possible.
Each organization provides a call to action to our RainbowKids community. Maybe volunteering at a school in Ethiopia has been a lifelong dream. Or, perhaps you could host a fundraising event for school children in Nepal. If so, one of these organizations might be the perfect answer for you to make a difference in the life of a child.
