Give the gift of learning

Help raise £4,200 during the Big Give Christmas Challenge and bring quality education to those who need it most.

How does it work?

The Big Give Christmas Challenge is a match-giving campaign. Generous supporters have already pledged £2,100 that must be matched during the live campaign. For example, your £20 Christmas Challenge donation will become £40 with the match funding and have double the impact!

Donations will only be doubled from midday on Tuesday 1st December to midday on Tuesday 8th December, at no extra cost to you.

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 be DOUBLED, bringing quality education to twice as many children who need it most. Pledge your support today and give a child a brighter future.

How can I give?

In order for your donation to be doubled you must donate via Link’s Big Give Christmas Challenge between midday on Tuesday 1st December and midday on Tuesday 8th December.

Please pledge your support today and we will be in touch when the campaign launches to let you know how to complete your donation.
