Battat's Adopt-a-Village Support
For every B. toyÔÇï and Our Generation doll, outfit or accessory you buy, a portion of sales goes to the WE Villages program to help provide education--the most powerful tool in the world for escaping poverty--in developing countries.
In developing communities across the globe, millions of children (70% of them are girls) cannot go to school. Usually this is because there's no school available or because of family responsibilities (farming, earning an income, walking hours each day for water) prevent them from attending.
WE (previously known as Free The Children) is an amazing organization, started more than 20 years ago by a 12-year-old Craig Kielburger (really!), that has now built more than 1,000 schools which educate more than 200,000 children throughout the developing world. Not only does WE Villages build schools, but they also build and foster sustainable villages through healthcare, water programs and alternate income projects for moms and dads that give children the opportunity to get the education they need.
The most incredible part is that a big part of WE's funding comes from kids just like you holding lemonade stands, bake sales, penny drives, walkathons, you name it. Just by buying a B. toy or an Our Generation doll or accessory you have helped change the world, and you are powerful (beyond belief!) to help even more. Find out how you can change the world.
Since 2011, Battat has been adopting a new Village every year while maintaining its support of the previous ones. From Kenya to Haiti to Ecuador to China, we have helped build over 25 classrooms allowing over 1000 students to go to school every day. All the while supporting the programs 5 pillars: education, water, health, food and opportunity.
Here is the list of the communities we have helped over the years:
