The journey to school starts half-way round the world

For many children, January is the start of the new school year: it’s an exciting time when uniforms and shoes are bought, bags are filled with books and parents dig deep to meet the costs.

WorldRemit customers are passionate about education. Many of them have experienced first-hand the benefits of a great education and are keen to ensure that the next generation has the same opportunity.

Here we celebrate that support. Our ground-breaking research reveals that 3.5 million children are in school because of diaspora contributions. We have inspiring stories from mums, aunties and uncles who are enabling children to make that all-important journey to the school gate. Join us on social media to tell us your story with the hashtag #EducationMatters. Or meet the innovators using technology to transform education, making it easier to access across the world.
