Every child has dreams for their future. Even in Gaza. Let’s help them now. This message cannot wait.


An 8-year-old child in Gaza has lived through three rounds of conflict. A year after the summer 2014 hostilities, the children of Gaza are still recovering from the nightmare. They are growing up in bleak conditions, surrounded by poverty and violence. But they still have dreams. A good education is a key to realizing their hopes for a better life. Every day, we teach 240,000 children in UNRWA schools in Gaza, where they learn, play and dream. We cannot do this without your help.
