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.

Moving forward in Education

Unlock Literacy


Globally, 70% of children in low and middle income countries live in learning poverty, and even if they attend school, are not able to read and understand a simple text.   Unlock Literacy is World Vision's evidence-based approach to ensuring children, especially the most vulnerable, read with comprehension and develop a love of learning, working in partnership with children, their families, communities, teachers, schools, and education systems.
