Today we are going to talk about an issue that concerns us all. Unfortunately, not all people are fully aware of it.

The girl in the picture that is wearing the orange t-shirt is called Mani, and all of her friends used to spend their days working on farms instead of attending a school.

Children to School

Children to School

Maybe you are not aware of this, but millions of children from all around the world are not going to school at all. Thanks to the support you have given us, the UNICEF and their partners have worked together with the government of India to create a possibility for every child to be able to go to school.

All of this has resulted in the passing of a brand new law called the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act of 2009.

For the first time in the history in India, the children are guaranteed their right to a quality elementary education by the state, and this is all with the help of communities and families. Thanks to your help, the UNICEF is also working alongside the government to properly train teachers and make sure that every child gets enrolled into school.

This is a very big success, which also means that the lives of children such as Mani will change for better. They will all get the education they are entitled to.

And when it comes to Mani, now she is enrolled in a school and has a very bright future ahead of her. She will become a brighter person that will get the chance to learn just like all the other children in the world.

Thank to your support we can now make sure that every child gets the chance for an equal education and the possibility to go to school in India and across the 150 countries that UNICEF has worked for.
