Giving Tuesday 2019: Support Refugee Children

Sabra is 5-years-old and she was born a refugee. Her family fled the violence in Darfur, Sudan in 2004 and has been living in a refugee camp since. Sabra’s story is not unique. She is one of millions of refugee children who will spend most of their childhood in refugee camps. When you choose to see Sabra for who she is, you choose to see the potential of who she can become. 

#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement built by individuals and communities in the US and in countries around the world. For this year’s campaign, our goal at iACT is to not only raise funds, but also to create hope for a generation of children that are easily overlooked. On #GivingTuesday an anonymous donor will match all donations, doubling your impact! We will not ignore a young generation of refugee girls and boys. We are looking for advocates to join us in doing the same. We are looking for people to help challenge the traditional narrative around refugees and to see each individual child and their potential. We’re asking iACT supporters to fundraise by posting Sabra’s story and committing to raise as much as they can on Facebook.

WHAT IS iACT DOING TO SUPPORT REFUGEE CHILDREN?

In Chad alone, only 3% of children attend an early childhood education program.

13,506 children have participated in iACT’s Little Ripples education program.

Around 24 million children forced to flee their homes and affected by conflict need mental health support.

35,706 children practice mindfulness for trauma recovery while participating in iACT’s programs.

100% of households surveyed across two refugee camps in eastern Chad are severely food insecure.

1,106,010 meals have been served to refugee children by refugees through iACT programs.
