Join our vision for children's education
With access to a quality education, children become lifelong learners, transform their communities and experience life in all its fullness. We work with communities and local governments to address the barriers to a quality education for all children. Empowering parents and teachers with the tools and training they need gives children the opportunity to shine.

A world with education for all - We are making progress. But there’s more to be done. All children have the right to a safe, inclusive and quality education. We want all children to be educated for life, in a safe and nurturing environment, in order to lead productive and fulfilling lives.
In FY22 - upwards of 43,000 children with disability in 37 countries were provided Education programming suitable for their needs. Our work also enabled families, communities, and schools to provide nurturing care with playful and effective pedagogy.
