Do your own fundraising

There are so many ways you can join Team Theirworld and raise money to help our work to end the global education crisis. And you can have fun while you do it!

For example, you could:

  • Host a dinner party
  • Shave your head
  • Hold a karaoke event
  • Throw a cake sale

The only limit is your imagination. And whatever you choose to do, you’ll be raising money to help us ensure every child gets access to the education and development they deserve.
