A growing population of refugees is in transition countries where they have no right to work, and their children have no access to education, and almost no prospects for relocation for the next 20 years. The refugees themselves set up schools (called learning centers) where the staff and teachers, who are refugees themselves, volunteer their time. With whatever little funding they can get, these volunteer teachers get paid a “travel allowance” as low as US$ 7 per month. This means that they have to be out-of-pocket whilst working as volunteers. This is clearly not sustainable.

With a monthly support of only US$ 38 per month, these volunteers will be able to cover their travel expenses and perhaps buy themselves a good meal every day that they have to work. Your adopted teacher will give you a monthly update of what she/he has been doing, and talk about one of her/his students. In addition, this adopted teacher will be able to tutor your children online for an hour a week.
