According to the UN, more than 617 million children worldwide are not achieving minimum proficiency levels in reading and mathematics. There are many reasons why – but the effect is the same: low employability and an endless circle of illiteracy and poverty. We respond to this educational deficit by providing children with access to quality schools.
REASONS FOR POOR EDUCATION
AND OUR IMPACT
LACK OF SCHOOLS
Construction of new schools, especially in rural areas, increases access to safe education for disadvantaged children, eliminates long and hazardous journeys.
POOR INFRASTRUCTURE OF SCHOOLS
Renovation and extension of existing schools and equipment upgrades increase the quality of education, thus creating a safe learning environment and reducing drop-out rates.
POOR SANITATION FACILITIES
Every school construction program also contains the building of gender disaggregated sanitary facilities to promote health, eliminate diseases and allow menstruating girls to stay in school.
POOR QUALITY OF TEACHERS
Teacher training is managed by our implementing partner. We find ways to improve the quality of education and knowledge through ICT programs, support teachers by providing technology, internet access, and learning platforms.
DISCRIMINATION AGAINST GIRLS
Education is one of the most critical areas of empowerment of women. We carefully assess the integration of girls in every new project. Educated girls contribute to the decrease in mortality rate and population explosion, and improve socioeconomic growth.
POVERTY AND CHILD LABOR
Our supported projects have a system to support impoverished families, allowing their children access to education and increase resources for survival. Quality education leads to improved income equality, employability, and reduced hunger and mortality rates.
The holistic development of our school projects leads to sustainable, well-equipped, and suitable schools adapted to each environment. Education is a powerful driver to reduce poverty and to promote sustainable economic growth. It leads to improved income equality, employability, and reduced hunger and mortality rates.
