Education Above All (EAA) Foundation launched a country-wide fundraising campaign this Holy Month of Ramadan to provide the world’s most impoverished and marginalised children, youth and women, a quality education, as around 263 million children and youth are out-of-school today, according to UNESCO.
The Ramadan campaign was announced at a press conference attended by dignitaries at EAA Foundation. EAA’s Ramadan campaign aims to support the hardest to reach children, youth and women around the world with opportunities to change their lives for a better future. EAA also provides and increases access to educational facilities, projects and resources; improves quality of education; and engages youth as leaders in defining and advocating for innovative solutions.
EAA is joining hands with several partners across Qatar to create awareness about challenges which millions around the world face, and which hinder access to quality education. The funds raised will support EAA’s projects across five countries. Donations can be made through donation boxes at 40 locations in Qatar – including shopping malls and public places; cash counters in Lulu Supermarkets and Al Meera Stores; and by contacting 4454 2288, or visiting the EAA website, educationaboveall.org, for payments by credit card or through your personal Ooredoo Mobile Money Account.
Al Rayyan TV is also organising a special episode for the EAA fundraising campaign which will air tomorrow, 23 May, during its programme, Layali Ramadan, to spread awareness about the global programmes of EAA and its fundraising projects.
EAA Foundation is eligible to receive Sadaqah and Zakat donations. The Ramadan campaign is raising funds for several EAA programmes: Educate A Child (EAC), Reach Out To Asia (ROTA), and Al Fakhoora; and for several of its projects in Gaza, West Bank; for Syrian and Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, Turkey and Syria; and for Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh and Somalia.
