Cause of the Week: Education

Education Week icon

Oct. 2-8, 2017

Lack of education is one of the biggest contributors to poverty. Around the world about 114 million young people lack basic reading and writing skills. From books to uniforms, and school lunches to after school tutoring, it takes a community to build the next generation of leaders. Help the next generation learn and develop by providing the educational support that they need – pledge to a CFC education charity.

 Here's how you can make an impact:

  • $25 provides a backpack and school supplies
  • $100 provides school books for eight girls in Sub Saharan Africa
  • $500 funds a six-week preschool literacy program at the local library

Don’t just learn about it, post about it! This week, think of a teacher, coach, or mentor that influenced your life. What children’s book did you love, or what school book did you loved to hate? Share why education is an important cause. And remember to #ShowSomeLoveCFC!
