Give the gift of learning

Join Link’s Big Give Christmas Challenge and bring quality education to those who need it most. Between 1st-8th December, the first £2,100 will be DOUBLED by match funding but it doesn’t stop there! Smashing this target puts Link in the running for EVEN MORE funds in the Christmas Challenge Awards. With your help, we’ll have the chance to win an extra £1,000 to transform even more lives through learning. Every donation counts.

How does it work?

The Big Give Christmas Challenge is a match-giving campaign. Between 1st-8th December, a total match funding pot of £2,100 will DOUBLE donations made to Link’s Christmas Challenge. After that, every donation gives us a better chance of winning EXTRA funding on top.

This opportunity only lasts until midday on Tuesday 8th December, so don’t delay.

How will I make a difference?

This year has disrupted children and their learning all around the world. Your generosity will bring quality education to those who need it most.

When schools are closed, it’s possible to live too remotely for remote learning. In Ethiopia, only 52% of the girls Link supports have a radio. Even if girls live in a house with a radio, power and signal are often unreliable, and they may not be allowed to access the programmes they need. Returning to school is important so they don’t miss out. Classrooms are preparing with soap and handwashing stations, and school libraries will be boosted with resources to take home.

You will be the link between a girl and her safe return to learning.

Community support can be the difference between a girl being able to go to school or never having the choice at all. Girls are often discouraged from education and burdened with chores, which have only increased during the pandemic. Access to education depends on families and communities. Networks like PTAs and Mother Groups are providing practical support and advice to get girls into school.

You will be the link between a village and a world where girls can be anything.

It takes just one teacher to change the world, but the world has changed. In uncertain times, wellbeing is critical. Prepared with the skills to support learners with social and emotional shocks, teachers will help children to bounce back and succeed.

You will be the link between a teacher and a generation of possibility.

In a year like no other, you are needed now more than ever.

Education is the key to a strong recovery. It helps children remain resilient, rebound after crisis and prepare for the unexpected. When girls have access to education, they are better able to gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to make the decisions that are best for them.

Your Christmas Challenge gift will transform lives through learning. Donate and give a child a brighter future.
