World Vision Education Strategy

Broadly stated, World Vision’s education strategy seeks to assure that children attain the core skills and abilities they need to go on to lead a productive and fulfilling life. It aligns with the shared global commitment to the Education-for-All Dakar goal that calls for all children receiving, at a minimum, ‘recognized’ and ‘measurable’ levels of reading, basic mathematics, and the most essential life skills. At the same time, it aligns with World Vision’s internal Educated-for-Life target (2012-2016) of increasing the percentage of children in WV program impact areas who are functionally literate by age 11.
