Refugee children miss an average of three years of school.

With your support, Tent Schools International gets refugee children back in school. We make sure students have loving teachers who create compassionate spaces for them to heal, catch up, and find hope for a bright future.

Here are examples of the work your gifts support: 

  • Educational support for Ukrainian children fleeing the Russian invasion 
  • Mobile school for Syrian refugees
  • Educational center for displaced Iraqis
  • Home computers for resettled refugees in the United States

Send love and hope to refugee children with a gift today!
