Educating children helps reduce poverty and promote gender equality. It helps lower child mortality rates and promote concern for the environment..

Access for everyone 

Every child has the right to education, but many children are excluded because of high costs, language and cultural barriers, geographical remoteness, or special needs.

We work to ensure free and equal access to quality education at all times, including in emergencies, as well as access to learning for young people so they can reach their full potential.

Strategy

For the Education goals to be met, actions need to address both human and material needs – buildings, books and teachers – and the organic requirements of getting all children into school and ensuring they complete a quality education. These include gender equality in society, good health and nutrition, and the strong backing of governments and communities.

 

We focus on

  • Promoting safe,healthy, friendly learning environment.

  • Improving skills of teachers

  • Creating culturally relevant, gender-sensitive lessons.

  • Offering life-skills training.
