Right now, millions of children are missing out on education. We’re working hard to change this. In Nairobi, Kenya, we’re providing schools with toilets to boost health AND attendance – so more children, like Irene, can realise their dreams. But we need to do more. So this summer, we’re asking you to make a song and dance about poverty – record a sound for our track now.
