Persil - Learning for Tomorrow

This week Lara went back to school - she's now in year two and is absolutely loving school.  She's super-excited about the wide curriculum this year which will see her learning French, Computing, Music and Humanities as well as her everyday favourites.

Persil sent Lara her very own schoolbag (her first) and some back-to-school essentials to demonstrate their commitment to education. Persil believe that every child deserves the chance to get a quality education and the life opportunity it can bring. This back-to-school period Persil are launching Learning for Tomorrow, an initiative to help give children in some of the world’s toughest areas the opportunity of a quality education.

Over the past couple of weeks, my Facebook feed has been filled with photos from proud parents of their children, prepped for the start of the school term.  It fills us with pride to see them disappear off to school to learn the wonders of life.  But around the world there are around 58 million children who won't have access to a primary education this year and in countries where there is access to education, there are many schools in countries such as Brazil, Vietnam and India that simply don't have the right resources to offer a solid start to education.  Persil's Learning for Tomorrow initiative is about providing access to quality education.

Persil have partnered with UNICEF to ensure that their 1.4 million Euro donation is targeted where it is needed most. The first step could be training more teachers, kitting out classrooms or tackling the social issues that lead to pupils dropping out of school. You can find out more about the work that UNICEF do across the globe to help better education standards.

Persil are big fans of dirt and mess (as are we) and they know that the school day teaches all of our children so much more than just reading and writing – they also learn vital skills such as making decisions, choosing friends, getting messy, and learning from their mistakes. Our school experience sets us up for life.
