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. In Armenia, we've strengthened parents' ability to better fulfill their role as first teachers and first protectors to their infants. Teachers in Malawi have been trained to help children attain basic literacy skills. We’ve set up reading clubs so kids can practice reading outside the classroom, and made millions of books available in languages where previously no children's books existed. In Zimbabwe, we worked with churches and communities to remove the cultural barriers that prevented girls from remaining in school.
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.
Using Play to Improve Learning

This stretches the thinking capabilities of pupils to higher levels. It also promotes pupil’s engagement, inclusion, holistic skills development and lifelong learning.
