Currently, there are approximately more than 27 million refugee or displaced children in the world. Children are a half of the displaced and refugee population. All these children have to flee from war and violence. They have left behind their home, their friends, their school, their life… They will have to face an uncertain future outside their country.
Education is a human right which many of these children have lost when they have been forced to leave their home. UNHCR works to protect and provide a productive future to all these children in order to make them to be self-sufficient and allow them to lead a worthy life. According to ACNUR, education provide children the basis to build a prosperous future and keep the children protected.
For this reason, in the year 2012, UNHCR started the project “Educate a child” to give response to urgent and important needs in education in 12 countries which welcomed a large population of refugee through capacity building, teachers training and the rehabilitation and/or construction of scholar infrastructure.
The first year, 176.800 children were incorporated to primary education and, at the end of 2014, 280.000 children were enrolled at school. The goal for 2016 is to have educated 3 million refugee children who currently have no access to any education.
Nicequest, a company which have more than 726.210 users, wanted to help UNHCR to obtain its goal and at the beginning of August gave to their users the possibility to change the points they obtained each time they made a survey for donations. Thanks to the solidarity of its users, Nicequest had raised 8.000€ in donations in 36 days.
One of the commitments from Worldcoo is to monitor the funded projects and track every € donated by the users of our e-commerce with a cause. In the following image we show you the report of funding and the monitoring of all the things that UNHCR has made thanks to the help received by the users of Nicequest:
Thanks to all people who helped make this project has been made possible and we take this opportunity to encourage you to continue helping to create a high social impact collaborating with the new Nicequest project.
