'Teach Me' global campaign that aims to spread awareness on providing 58 million children with no access to primary education took off Monday in Doha.
Educate A Child (EAC), a programme of Education Above All (EAA), and Qatar Charity (QC) announced the launch.
It draws attention to the issue of millions of children worldwide denied basic primary education because of poverty, conflict, natural disaster, and discrimination.
Launched in 2012, EAC aims breakthrough in providing quality primary education to such children. Through EAC supported programming, children overcome barriers to educational access and retention, EAA said.
The joint campaign follows the Memorandum of Understanding QC and EAA signed in 2014. The EAC is a global initiative that HH Sheikha Moza bint Nasser launched to support out-of-school children worldwide.
EAA Deputy CEO Fahad Al Sulaiti said, "We hope that this joint initiative with Qatar Charity will be a step towards making a difference to out-of-school children." The one-year campaign, will focus on fundraising for educational projects and activities, in countries where children suffer from hard and extreme conditions.
The campaign will seek to raise QR 110 Million, which equates to over 270,000 children receiving access to one year's education.
