EAA continues to tackle deep-rooted socioeconomic barriers on its mission towards equal access to quality education across underserved communities around the world.

* Nearly 17,000 students from 17 public and private schools take part

Education Above All (EAA) Foundation carried out its latest 'No Child Left Out' 2019 campaign, which saw "overwhelming school participation".

The campaign inspired thousands of students and teachers across Qatar to donate cash so that their peers from poor backgrounds could attend school, just like them, and attain a prosperous future, EAA, which is "committed to providing education to the most disadvantaged populations", said in a statement.

Nearly 17,000 students from 17 public and private schools took part in the initiative, the statement noted.

The campaign ran from September to December 2019 with the aim of supporting EAA’s project, ‘Together’, for out-of-school children in Qatar.

Moza Saeed al-Mansouri, International Fundraising and Partnerships specialist at Education Above All Foundation, said: “We are thankful to all participating schools, whose students demonstrated to us the power of youth engagement in bringing positive change. These students obviously found our call close to their hearts and chipped in with whatever they could. They are our heroes.

"We are thankful to all our partners and value their continued support of our mission so that no child is left behind.”

'No Child Left Out' is EAA’s "most popular fundraising campaign and captures the imagination of donors very strongly", the statement points out. During Ramadan 2019, the campaign received "overwhelming support" from donors as it realised QR15mn in one month.

This money goes towards helping out-of-school children in several countries, EAA adds.

Across its programmes, EAA continues to tackle deep-rooted socioeconomic barriers on its mission towards equal access to quality education across underserved communities around the world.
