The Global Fund for Children
is a wonderful force for good in the world. Our
longtime charity partner, the GFC works with local nonprofit organizations to advance the dignity of children and young people around the world.
Since 1997, the GFC has invested nearly $31 million in more than 575 grassroots organizations in 78 countries, helping transform the lives of 9 million of the world’s most vulnerable children.
At Tea, we believe in and wholeheartedly support their mission. Our support takes a variety of forms…
- On a selected Thursday each month, Tea holds a Global Giving Thursday. We match every single donation given to the Global Fund for Children through our site on this day. (You can choose to donate when you check out).
- Each year we design several exclusive (and adorable) pajama sets that we sell around the winter holidays. We donate all proceeds from the sale of these PJs directly to the Global Fund for Children.
- We also hold regular Give Back events throughout the year, during which we donate a portion of all our online sales to the GFC.
Spotlight on Iroda in Dushanbe, Tajikistan
This season, we’re celebrating the things that connect us all. We want to show kids that no matter where we live or what language we speak, we all care about the same things. We are partnering with the Global Fund for Children to break down barriers and open minds.
This month we feature Iroda in Dushanbe, Tajikistan.
Tajikistan is the poorest of the former Soviet Union countries, which has severe consequences for children’s well being. In particular, the country lacks specialists and current medical knowledge for children with disabilities – especially those with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). They are frequently misdiagnosed, kept isolated in their homes or institutionalized.
Founded by parents of children with ASD, Iroda is pioneering advancements in treatments and education opportunities. The program provides children with therapy and education services to match their individual needs, and helps them transition into formal schools. Iroda also trains educators, social workers and parents to ensure proper care of children with ASD.
When you make a purchase this month, consider adding a donation for the children in Dushanbe. Even a little bit of love will go a long way! Learn more about Iroda
