#SCHOOLSSAVE is a fundraising campaign to help PROJECT AK-47 build SCHOOLS and SAVE kids from being recruited as child soldiers in Southern Philippines.

PROJECT AK-47 has successfully built schools in the past. However, our job will not be finished until EVERY CHILD has a school to attend. 

Most of the insurgency in the Philippines takes place in areas where indigenous people groups live, and the majority of children who live in these tribal areas have no opportunity to gain an education because there are no schools for them to attend. Rebel groups like the New People’s Army (NPA) see this lack of education as an opportunity to indoctrinate and enlist the children as soldiers.

SCHOOLS are the best way to SAVE kids from coercion to join rebel armies.
