With your help, our numbers can keep growing. Give monthly through the Honor Roll program to ensures a lasting impact on our children, tailors, and communities.

Children

In too many communities around the world, children are being left behind because they lack the basic resources needed to attend school.

A school uniform changes a child’s life forever.

When a child is in school, exposure to risks such as gang recruitment, kidnapping, child labor and trafficking are reduced.

Schools or communities that received uniforms have seen a dramatic increase in daily attendance rates and decreased dropout rates.

Children in the proper school uniform do not fear being sent home and therefore are more likely to engage with their teachers and peers.

More engaged students = better learners.

Tailors

All of our uniforms are made by local tailors, earning fair wages. That means more jobs and opportunity in the communities we serve, especially for women.

Increased job opportunities because all uniforms are made as locally to the schools as possible.

Schools

Our Parent Contribution Fund gives parents ownership in their child’s education while creating safer, cleaner, more technologically up to date schools.

At the time of uniform distribution, parents who are able, contribute $1-3. Once the funds have been collected, parents along with oversight from school leaders and our Partner organization, vote on how to allocate the funds to make improvements to the school.

Communities

Schools, full of safe, confident and happy children along with local job opportunities result in hopeful and more prosperous communities.

When a child is in school, exposure to risks such as gang recruitment, kidnapping, child labor and trafficking are reduced. The ripple effect is clear. Receiving a school uniform changes a child’s life forever.

Learn How We Impact Communities

The provision of uniforms is lowering the burden of our parents. In addition, it is improving self esteem and I am sure that this will make us work hard academically. Thank you Tailored for Education for helping us in building our future.
