Qatar Airways continues to be a proud supporter of the Educate A Child programme.
In 2013, Qatar Airways partnered with Educate A Child in order to help the organisation achieve its goal of providing quality primary education to millions of out-of-school children.
Through Qatar Airways’ comprehensive suite of communication platforms, which reach a wide global passenger audience, the initiative is showcased on the world-class airline’s inflight entertainment system, inflight magazines, website and social media channels.
Passengers can now donate on qatarairways.com upon reaching the payment page during the online flight booking process. Donations can be made up to 50 USD per booking.
Donations onboard Qatar Airways aircrafts:
Passengers have the opportunity to donate online when booking their flight through the Qatar Airways website as well as on board through envelopes found in the seat backs of every Qatar Airways aircraft. All the funds donated on board the aircraft are matched by Qatar Airways. In November 2014 Educate A Child received 2.4 million Qatari Riyals from Qatar Airways donations.
Educate A Child was launched in 2012 by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser as a global programme of the Education Above All Foundation, and aims to significantly reduce the number of children worldwide who are denied their right to education.
Educate A Child works with partner organisations towards achieving substantial breakthroughs in providing out-of-school children faced with extreme poverty, cultural barriers and conflict-affected environments an opportunity for a full curriculum of primary education.
