General David E. Greer
Have you ever longed for something?
Imagine experiencing that feeling with something as important as education.
Education impacts your entire life. Out of the 7.2 million refugee children throughout the world, only 3.7 million have the opportunity to attend school. Globally 91% of children attend elementary school, whereas only 63% of refugee children have this opportunity; of that 63%, only 24% attend high school.
Education protects and empowers refugees
Education protects refugee children from forced recruitment into armed groups, child labor, and sexual exploitation. Education empowers refugees by giving them the knowledge and skills to rebuild their lives and communities.
Are you wondering how you can help these children?
This is where American FRRME comes in.
Our former and beloved executive director, General David E. Greer, passed away unexpectedly in July 2020. His vision was to help refugees empower themselves and improve their lives through education. In loving memory of General Greer’s commitment to service and education, American FRRME established a tribute to honor his legacy – an annual scholarship that would enable dedicated, hardworking Iraqi refugee students the opportunity to attend school. The scholarship provides financial assistance to help cover tuition for these vulnerable youth so they can continue their studies with the hope for a brighter future ahead – something near and dear to General Greer and his vision.
We want to fulfill this vision. Will you join us in bringing life to his vision by donating to the General David E. Greer scholarship fund?
