School Outreach

School girls

We love working with schools because so much of our work is about helping children from some of the poorest countries to go to school and have a proper education. Without our help many of these children, especially girls, would never get the chance to do this. l We also help older students with vocational training for their future careers such as teaching and nursing. Often we help support teachers and schools with books, equipment and salaries.

We recognise that talking to children, especially younger ones, about refugees and issues facing children in countries like South Sudan and Uganda can be very difficult but it doesn’t have to be. We’ve designed a range of activities and topics for talking to students, each based on age appropriateness.

Most of all we want students, teachers and parents to have fun and come together to support children and schools in South Sudan and Uganda. We can help you organise fun days, dress down days, baking challenges, fetes and sports days.

We’d love to hear from you if you would like an IRT team member to come and speak at your school, perhaps as part of Refugee Week every June, or to help run a fun day or challenge. Please contact 020 8994 9120 or email info@irt.org.uk
