On Giving Tuesday - Give Education

Washington, D.C., 26 November 2017 - It's Giving Tuesday - a day of global giving fueled by you, our supporters! Today, we invite you to give the gift of education. Shop the JRS/USA Global Education Initiative Gift Catalog and purchase things like a school uniform for only $50, or provide a whole classroom with books for $100. 

Then, let your friends and family know that you did your shopping with us by sharing on social media! 

At Jesuit Refugee Service, we believe that all children, especially those forced to flee by conflict or crisis, have the right to an education. JRS is working to make this a reality for more refugees, many of whom do not have access to education or the supplies they need to succeed when classes are available. Many of the 65 million refugees and forcibly displaced people in the world are children, and only half of them have access to primary education. The numbers dwindle for secondary and higher education. 

With your support this Giving Tuesday, we can give more students a seat at school.
