Letter from the Editor
We hope you’re enjoying your holiday season!
In 2015 we accomplished incredible things together. By building more than 2,000 schools and prioritizing education, we’ve ensured that many children all over the world are empowered to learn. We’ve brought water to more than 2,500 communities and improved sanitation facilities in almost 753,000 communities. Together, we brought the gift of sponsorship to more than a million children and trained tens of thousands more community members. We’ve done this all while prioritizing the rights of all children – whether they are girls or boys – and ensuring our impact will last for years and generations.
With a new year comes new beginnings – but not new goals. We will focus on what we’ve always set out to do. WE PLAN to empower children and communities as they move from a life of poverty to a future with opportunity. Our commitment is stronger than ever – and we can’t do it without you.
Here’s to moving forward in 2016!
