Watch children tell us what they love about learning

Girl holds backpack

As kids in Canada returned to school this week, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on what school means to children in vulnerable countries around the world.

Watch to see what school means to children in need, and join our challenge to donate 150 backpacks to children around the world. Learn more: ccfcanada.ca/backpack-challenge.
