International Human Solidarity Day on December 20, 2012

For the second year in a row as part of the International Human Solidarity Day, “On the Road to School” is asking for your help in supporting NGOs, associations and all the people who work so hard to provide a decent education to underprivileged children.

From December 20, 2012 to January 20, 2013, please donate to one of Colas Life’s partner associations.*

This year, Colas Life supported 4 projects, each of which definitely deserves special help and attention!

  • A schoolhouse in Tiriguioute, Morocco: the construction and renovation work has been completed, and the computers have been delivered. However, the school still doesn’t have enough money to pay an instructor to teach the children how to use a computer;
  • The Kekeli Center in Togo: a building is currently under construction on the new Hanoukopé market site to serve as a safe haven for child laborers and favor their education. The center needs money to buy tables and chairs for the new classrooms;
  • Schools in Hospitals in France: volunteer teachers are doing an amazing job with sick children who are not able to go to school because of their illnesses. Thanks to their effort, a number of children benefit from regular schooling while at the hospital or during long-term home care. The association needs more money to be able to help face growing demands;
  • Suncokret Center in Croatia: the center is still working to support and reconcile Serbian and Croatian children. The economic crisis has forced many of their financial backers to cut off funding, and the center needs money in order to remain open.

Learn more about these projects at Please donate to one or more of these remarkable associations and NGOs which are hard at work in the field.
