In the Asia Pacific region, despite impressive gains in enrolment, 150 million children (15% of all children across the countries where World Vision has programmes) are still unable to access school. In addition, with the current COVID-19 crisis unfolding, many of the 430 million children affected by school closures in the region are now in danger of dropping out of the education system. Vulnerable and hard to reach children, may never return to school if they fall further behind, due to not being reached with alternative ways of learning during school closures.
Because of our community-focused solutions, for every child you help, 4 more children benefit too.
Through WV’s education interventions focused on early grade literacy and early childhood development, we want all children to be educated for life, in a safe and nurturing environment, in order to lead productive and fulfilling lives.
