Donors and Public Contribution
Millions of children around the world suffer from unsafe educational environments. In other words, they do not access safe learning opportunity considered as basic need. Accessing financial resources is the key factor in promoting safety level of schools and also providing learning courses to build the culture of safety between school staff and students. Lack of safety in this area could lead to loss of innocent children’s lives in the case of disaster.
