educating communities

Over 67 million children around the world, girls in particular, do not have access to quality education. We’re helping children, young people and adults to get the knowledge and life skills they need to realise their potential.

We ensure that economically and socially marginalized children and girls in particular, enroll and remain in schools within the world’s poorest countries. We put local communities on the front lines in identifying needs and meeting the highest standards of education. We also work in partnership with local and state governments to identify and bridge knowledge gaps.

Some of the ways we work with our local partners to increase access to quality education includes:

  • Provision of Safe Drinking Water and Effective Sanitation and Hygiene Facilities.
  • Provision of Books and educational supplies.
  • School Feeding Programs.
  • Construction and Rehabilitation of Classroom Blocks. Provision of School Furniture.
  • Strengthening Local Communities Education Policy and Management.
  • Provision of technical assistance to nongovernmental organisations and community based organisations.

We invite you to take a look at some of the ways that we’re helping poor children enroll and remain in schools.

Delivering Literacy Tools To Vulnerable Children

We provide textbooks and writing materials, branded school bags and locally grown nutritional grains to enhance effective learning and encourage high attendance and retention rates in schools.

Providing Access to Safe Drinking Water, Effective Sanitation and Hygiene Education

Access to sanitation facilities is also a fundamental right that safeguards health and human dignity. We give vulnerable children these facilities not only to meet that right, it also provides the most favorable setting to encourage behavior change in the school and decrease dropout rates especially for adolescent girls.

Strengthening Local Communities Education Policy and Management

Today, most development actors agree that involvement of the community is a crucial component for strengthening the education system. We provide platforms for local communities to participate and actively contribute in shaping education policy and management for good. These include but not limited to: forming village education committees to manage schools, providing skill instruction and local culture information, advocating and promoting girls’ education, identifying factors contributing to educational problems.
