The Road to an Education€65 / £55

This gift steps it up a gear by helping children get an education through our Investing in Futures projects.

For vulnerable communities, there can be many bumps in the road to an education.  The daily struggle of travelling long distances and threats to safety along the way, mean many children, especially girls are forced to drop out of school.

This gift is available as a printed gift card or as a beautifully designed ecard.  Simply make your choice during checkout. 

Prefer to order by phone?  Call 1850 30 40 55 (Republic of Ireland) or 0800 0 30 40 55 (Northern Ireland) between 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday.

All gifts can also be purchased at your local Oxfam shop.

HOW DOES THIS GIFT HELP?

The money raised by this gift will go into our Investing in Futures fund, supporting a wide range of life-changing programmes that help people access vital services like education and healthcare.

You’ll be helping people like Esnat* from Malawi used to spend five hours walking the 25km each way to and from her school.  After the long journey she would sometimes doze off in class and often was too tired to do her homework when she finally got home.   Thanks to her Oxfam bike, distance is no longer a barrier and students like Esnat* have a better chance of a brighter future. 

“I want to be a nurse.  I have had that passion ever since I was younger.  I want to help the sick and my community.  I want to earn money to help my family.”
