Education is one of the most effective ways to move families out of poverty and into a brighter future.
Children who are poor often don’t receive the quality of education they deserve, performing in the bottom three percentile of children in high-income countries. Yet, education is one of the most effective ways to move families out of poverty and into a brighter future. That’s why we’re focused on improving education for children living in poverty. We do this in five ways:
  1. Engage the community: Schools function better and students learn more when parents and other community members are involved.
  2. Partner for change: We partner with other experienced organizations to learn from their expertise and implement their good ideas in our program areas.
  3. Support effective teaching: We work with local ministries of education and international organizations that support teacher training so teachers have the tools they need to improve their classroom environments.
  4. Build volunteers’ capacity: We provide technical training and offer self-directed learning opportunities for volunteer tutors during and after school.
  5. Support local ​learning resources: We are creating locally relevant reading and learning materials so that children can learn what they need to know in their mother tongues.
