Story

Thousands of Ukrainian schools have been damaged or destroyed, leaving 1.7 million children learning remotely or in a hybrid model. But around 300,000 children inside Ukraine can’t access remote learning due to a lack of devices.

To help meet that need, Theirworld is working with the Ukrainian government to urgently deliver more than 100,000 laptops so some of the most vulnerable children can keep learning despite the disruption of war.

Please help us by taking on a steps challenge this June. For every £200 raised, Theirworld will be able to donate one HP laptop to help a child in Ukraine stay connected to education.

Start fundraising

1. Make sure you’ve signed up via our website so we have your details, including your address, to send you exclusive WalkActive app access and a Theirworld t-shirt once you hit £10 (UK only)

2. Create your fundraising page by clicking the 'start fundraising' button. Personalise your page with a photo and include some text about why you're taking on this challenge.

3. Start fundraising - set your target and share your page with friends, family or work colleagues to encourage sponsorship. 

4. 1st June start taking steps to help Ukrainian children keep learning. Take a selfie and share it on social media with the hashtag #YourWalk. Track your progress on your page and keep walking!

Pick one of these walking challenges:

Walk the ‘Thrilling 300k’: Take 300,000 steps in a month (an average of 10,000 steps a day)

or

Form a team to walk the ‘Magic Million’: Walk 1,000,000 steps. You can do this as a group – such as with family, friends, school or workplace

Take steps your way! In the park or on the way to school, taking the dog for a walk or opting to take the stairs. Get out and about in the way that works best for you during June - it's the taking part that counts!

Fundraising matters

For every £200 raised, Theirworld will be able to donate one HP laptop to help a child in Ukraine stay connected to education. 

You may think a laptop is just a laptop. But for young Ukrainians, a laptop is a lifeline. It provides a connection with family and friends, a sense of stability during a crisis and, most of all, a way to keep on learning. 

The money you raise will help provide laptops for vulnerable children in Ukraine, enabling them to access education, receive trauma support and contact friends.

Help is at hand
