Children across the globe have had limitations on their education this year due to COVID-19. Imagine having limited access to education for your entire life. Educational Development is one of our core pillars at All4Aid. Unfortunately, given all the recent events, we haven’t been able to resume classes at our All4Kids Learning Centre yet.
Despite that, this week one of our All4Kids students has been coming to our centre almost every day. She has been coming to shower and do laundry with her mother. While at the centre, she would work in her math workbook and read through English stories with our volunteers. Not only does she speak Farsi and English, she was also learning Greek in Moria before the fire began. She even started teaching one of our new volunteers some basic Farsi words this week! She’s only 10 years old.
This is just one of our many amazing students we’ve had the opportunity of getting to know and walk alongside. As children around the world start to go back to school this month, keep in mind the millions of children who cannot and those who continue to be displaced.
