To tide you through the school holidays and the last few weeks of Circuit Breaker, World Vision has some meaningful suggestions for your family and you!

Eliseu is an 11-year-old who stopped going to school because his family can no longer afford his school fees. He sits by the border and sells Quisangua (a drink made from sugar and maize) to people travelling across. More children like him stand around in the scorching heat, hoping to sell and afford the next meal.

Drought has ransacked their lands, leaving their families in uncertainty of a future. The severity of the drought is sweeping the chances of selling anything as people no longer have the money.

Even at age 5, Cheru knows that her mother worries about water and struggles to carry enough for their daily needs, though she makes the?trek twice a day.

As circuit breaker measures have?made home-based learning and social distancing the new norm, it can be a struggle for parents to find new and innovative ways to engage children at home!

If you are a parent facing the same struggles, try these education-based activities with your children to spend meaningful time with them, while broadening their horizon to become more informed, caring global citizens.

Our world is no longer the same as it was 50 years ago. Climate change now threatens to undo the past 50 years of progress in development, global health and poverty reduction. For the first time, a global generation of children will grow up in a world made far more dangerous and uncertain as a result of a changing climate and degraded environment.?We spotlight 3?groups of children and youth from all across the globe who have decided to step up and do their part for the environment!?
