Learn more about our most popular Rescue Gift—“A Year of School.”
The International Rescue Committee helps to ensure that children affected by persecution, conflict or natural disaster do not miss out on the benefits of a good education. When emergencies strike, we provide safe spaces where uprooted children can continue their schooling and heal from trauma. In the aftermath of crisis, we help train teachers and rehabilitate schools, giving young people the foundation they need to build a strong future for themselves and their communities.
