Can't Wait to Learn: support e-learning for children in war
Every child has the right to education, even if they happen to grow up in war. It is often forgotten by warring parties, who would rather look after their own interests than the children's future. Right now, there are about 30 million children in the world who never get the opportunity to go to school due to war. We want to change that. That is why we have developed Can't Wait to Learn , the e-Learning program that improves the future of children in war. Support us so that more people can access it. THIS IS WHAT MAKES YOUR MONEY: A solar-powered reading tablet costs SEK 1,050 to buy and program. WHAT WE DO: War Child does not build permanent schools. That's not our job. But we make sure that children, whose schools have been bombed and teachers have fled, still have access to alternative education. Because when children learn to read, count and write, their chances of a positive future increase. Our e-Learning program, Can't Wait to Learn (CWTL), has received a great deal of international attention. It gives children outside the school system the opportunity to teach on solar-powered tablets. Can't Wait to Learn is based entirely on open source and has been created in collaboration with teachers, students, parents, game makers and professors. CWTL was initially tested with children in Sudan. The evaluation from students, parents and other adults was very positive and the children have had to credit the teaching as the corresponding time in the "real" school. This means that once they can go back to school, they are not several years behind in the level of education. In 2017, we will start our work with Can't Wait to Learn in the war-torn Middle East, especially in Jordan and Lebanon. The needs here are enormous, not least for all children who fled Syria. As early as 2020, an estimated 170,000 children will have access to education via Can't Wait to Learn. Google is one of the project's sponsors, but we need more. Thank you for your contribution! All the courses on the tablets are approved by the respective country's Ministry of Education, which means that the children can credit the knowledge as "real" schooling. Each plate is used by at least three children. Help War Child take the war out of the children. Give your contribution now! If this project does not reach its full financial goal in the allotted time, I agree that my contribution will be used for War Child's other project to support children in war.

Children and covid-19
FOR VULNERABLE CHILDREN, CORONA IS MORE THAN A VIRUS || With schools closing and families in quarantine, the already most vulnerable children are now affected. Those living in dysfunctional families, substance abuse, psychosocial problems, insecurity and without a social network as protection. YOU CAN HELP THESE CHILDREN. What children need most is a safe adult. An adult who does not always have to be a close family member, but can just as easily be a neighbor, a friend's parent, the kiosk owner, the adult cousin or someone else who listens and sees the child. Be a confident adult - invite one of your children's friends who you think may need extra support. If they do not answer the first time, ask again. Are you afraid to get involved, maybe wondering if you are wrong in your suspicions? Turn it around: What if you are right instead ?. Keep an extra eye on stairwells, playgrounds and neighborhoods, at children who may not have the natural social safety net. Dare to go ahead, ask questions and listen to the answer. During these times, you can also get in touch via text message or via social channels. TRUST YOUR STOMACH FEEL. If you are worried or have suspicions of violence or abuse, contact the social services in your municipality. Your registration can be anonymous. If you suspect that a child is in acute danger, call 112. Immediately here are some pages that may be helpful in how you can be a safe adult: If you think a child is getting sick: https://bit.ly/3b8of8k : Talk to children about abuse: https://bit.ly/392QBiy Protect children from online perpetrators: https://bit.ly/2x6EC6B Talk to children about the risks online: https://bit.ly/2x6O7T8 Talk to children about Corona: https://bit.ly/2QsGoFU When children get sick: https://bit.ly/2IZmkH3 Questions and answers from Childhood: https://bit.ly/396VkA9
