“Education must be more than factual enlightenment – it must enrich the character as well as the mind.” Ronald Reagan, proclaiming a “National Day of Reflection” in honor of Rabbi Schneerson’s 80th birthday.
On April 3, 2012, the United States will be celebrating Education and Sharing Day, which recognizes the importance of education in the development of a strong and stable society. Education and Sharing Day promotes the value of education in honor of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, who committed his efforts to outreach and education around the world.
Education is an important route out of poverty. The Millennium Development Goal calls for every girl and boy across the globe to receive a primary education. In our dedication to achieving universal primary education let us join together on Education and Sharing Day 2012 and remind the global community of the importance of education in achieving equality and stability within developing nations. Everyone is capable of making a difference. Together with other individuals you can be a part of a movement to bring awareness of the effects of poverty on the children and families living in Lebrun, Haiti. By making a donation to HavServe’s Backpack and School Supplies Project you will provide children in impoverished Haiti with the opportunity to attend school.
Education and Sharing Day honors a remarkable effort and while HavServe continues to pursue the mission of achieving universal primary education we hope that others will join us on the journey.
