Breaking down barriers to learning
All children deserve a good education. But 1 in 3 children globally don’t even receive a quality primary education, and the consequences are far reaching. Children who aren’t in school are at greater risk of exploitation, child marriage, and lower earning potential. For those who are in school, issues like poorly trained teachers, large class sizes and lack of learning materials mean that too many children still cannot read or write.
We address barriers to education and work with communities and local governments to improve access and quality of the education children receive. We also make sure girls and children with disabilities are included. We focus on early years, primary and secondary education as well as helping families to support children’s learning.
