Stand By Me do incredible work helping children and families combat poverty through education. The approach is holistic and where there is need SBM strive to address it. Many children come to school hungry and so SBM provide meals. Many children don't have a bed to sleep in and come to school tired and so SBM provide beds. It's hard to learn when you're hungry and tired.
I'm sleeping on the floor rather than my bed for a week in the hope that those who can will donate. All the money raised goes towards providing beds for families who sleep on the floor.
A bed makes a big difference, as you quickly realise when you go without one. Thank you for all donations. Why not give it a go yourself for a week and help raise even more beds!
Stand by Me rescues kids from extreme circumstances, then does whatever it takes to provide the care, love and attention they need to thrive. We care for 3,500 kids across the world, from Myanmar to Colombia to Ethiopia. No two are the same, some are orphaned, some abandoned, some abused or living in extreme poverty, so we take care to understand and meet each of their individual needs from food and healthcare, to loving parents and quality education. We're in this for the long term, until they reach their potential, stand on their own two feet and become who they were created to be.
