Each year 200 to 500 million school days are estimated to be lost in low-income countries due to common health problems experienced by schoolchildren, including worm infections, iron-deficiency anaemia and hunger.
With your support we can raise awareness on the importance of inclusive school health and nutrition (SHN) programmes to increase the educational achievement of children and reduce global poverty and disease.
PCD, based at Imperial College London, is a charitable organisation (Charity Number 273071).
Ways to get involved
Whatever you are able to give will help us to tackle the many boundaries faced by schoolchildren around the world. From as little as $20 you could help to deworm and feed a child for an entire year. See Ways to donate.
