With school almost over for the summer, why not spare a thought for the teachers that have taught your children over the last year and show your appreciation with a gift from Concern Worldwide? As children across the country countdown the days until they are ‘free’, now is a great time to spare a thought for the hard working and dedicated teachers who strive to make a difference through education.
Concern Worldwide offer a great range of quirky and ethical gifts that are perfect for teachers of every age group. Each charity gift comes with a specially designed greeting card that can be personalised for the recipient, with every purchase from the ‘School Days’ section helping to fund Concern’s education projects around the world. Choose from –
- £7 could buy a water filter to provide clean, disease-free water so children can concentrate on going to school rather than collecting water.

Concern Worldwide believe that education is the key to ending poverty which is why they run a variety of education projects in some of the world’s poorest communities. For example, in Kenya, Concern provide grants to local primary schools to improve buildings and help ensure children have a safe, secure place to learn. Whilst in Bangladesh, Concern work with school boards to ensure that the poorest children receive special attention in school to improve their performance.
By providing children with an education, they are being equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to break the grinding cycle of poverty. So why not purchase a gift for your favourite teacher today…
and help children living in extreme poverty around the world receive the education they need for a better life.
