"Your gift of education is the chance of a better life. With your help, we can give hope to children like Safiatou to be equipped with the knowledge, skills and confidence to shape a better future for themselves, their families and their communities."

Imagine what you and UNICEF could do for children like Safiatou. Donate now to help transform their families, their communities - and their countries.

Education is the key to a better future - for children, for their parents, and for the entire country."
