Schools for Asia

"Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world. I hope we can count on your support today."

Serena Williams, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador

The new UNICEF Schools for Asia initiative, building on the success of Schools for Africa, will give children the best start in life.

We’ll do this through sound teaching and learning materials, school facilities that are safe and clean and contain mechanisms that protect children from harm, well-designed curriculum that includes life skills education focusing on health, nutrition, hygiene and sanitation, and HIV prevention, trained teachers that can give children a rich and empowering education and build environments where girls and boys are treated equally and enabled to be the best that they can be. Only then will children be equipped with the knowledge, skills and confidence to shape a better future for themselves, their communities and the world.

The focus will be particularly on those who, because of their gender, ethnicity, disability, geographic location or poverty are less likely to get a quality education.

SfAsia countries include Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Lao PDR, Mongolia, Nepal, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Timor-Leste and Vietnam.

Help us transform children’s lives through education.
