Learning for Life provides South Asia’s poorest children with education and basic healthcare – something we take for granted. We support children on the streets, in slums and in remote villages, providing primary education, vocational training and health check ups for children suffering from malnutrition and other medical conditions. The need is great. For example, in Pakistan, almost one in ten children die before the age of five and in Bangladesh over 70% of slum-dwelling children have no access to education. Simply being born in the wrong place at the wrong time means a life of crippling poverty. Education and healthcare gives them at least a fighting chance in life.
