We are asking teachers to strive to get 100% of students in their class to each bring in 2 AED to save 2 Eyes during the month of Ramadan. Just 2 AED provides treatment to protect one person from river blindness for an entire year. All proceeds will be donated to Emirates Red Crescent in support of the Reach Campaign.
Schools have a unique role to play in educating students and eliminating stigma around Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) for future generations. The school engagement guide contains concise and practical background information, lesson plans for various grades and useful resources to support planning for student engagement in the Reach Campaign.
