This holiday season, The Body Shop is teaming up with War Child, the global charity for children affected by war, to grant children the wish of education. For every specially selected gift you buy, The Body Shop will make a contribution of approximately 7 cents to War Child that funds a class for a child. The Body Shop is aiming at providing more than six million lessons in war-torn areas.
Dr. Samantha Nutt, Founder and President of War Child Canada says: “In areas of conflict, getting a child back into school keeps them safe. Building their confidence, knowledge and skills opens the doors of opportunity. That’s why we have teamed up with The Body Shop this holiday season. Buy a gift, help a child. It’s that simple.”
In Uganda, War Child helps some of the most marginalized children attend and complete primary school. It costs approximately $40 to pay for the books, uniform and fees that enable a child to go to school for a whole academic year of 35 weeks. This means each day costs approximately 23 cents and with 4 hours schooling per day, it is less than 7 cents per lesson.
You can find the perfect gift for someone on your list and help a child go to school. To see the gists you can visit the Body Shop website here – thebodyshop.ca
