For communities facing poverty, access to education can be a huge challenge due to schools being few and far between, a lack of resources or teachers, and conflict. This gift helps to bridge the gap and empower students with educational opportunities in difficult contexts.

How your gift helps

Tabitha lives in a rural village in South Sudan, where education has often been out of reach due to decades of conflict, insufficient resources and not enough teachers. But Tabitha and her friends are now enjoying the empowerment of classroom learning thanks to TEAR’s Christian partner ACROSS. ACROSS provides local schools with teacher training and mobilises parents and passionate volunteers to encourage school attendance and student wellbeing. South Sudan has a brighter future as a new generation of learners are given the opportunity to grow in their God-given potential through education!
