Today 250 million youth 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 collaboration with local and international partners, Embrace Relief distributed educational supplies both in the United States and worldwide to over 47,450 students. Over 7,000 students have been given access to ICT computer technology, 37,000 books donated to schools and public libraries, and 1,450 backpacks or school supplies have been donated. With educational assistance projects, Embrace Relief gave out thousands of dollars’ worth of merit-based scholarships to college students in the US.
