Educating Underprivileged ChildrenEducation is vital for the personal success and growth of everyone, but unfortunately 250 million children worldwide still lack basic literacy skills, and more than 60% of those are girls. One of the sustainable development goals of the UN is to ensure that, by 2030, all girls and boys complete free, equitable, and quality primary and secondary education. In honor of this ambitious and admirable goal, Embrace Relief has set out to educating underprivileged children worldwide in several prominent ways.

In 2020, we raised $12,000 to bring internet connectivity to three schools throughout New Jersey. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, students around the globe had to attend school from home, but many did not have the ability to connect online. $4,000 was evenly distributed among Irvington, Clifton, and Wildwood New Jersey to bring internet access to children in need.
You wouldn’t know it because of the summer heat, but a new school year is almost upon us. Families across the country will soon be going back-to-school shopping to give their children the tools they need to be prepared for their classes. Unfortunately, for many families, this simply is not an affordable option. For those families, Embrace Relief is here to help.
