Education

Help more children gain the knowledge and skills they need to succeed.

We're working to bring lasting, quality education to more children. So they can secure their futures. 

Education is the beginning. The foundation we need to learn, grow and thrive. Yet millions of children don’t get this chance, due to issues like economic hardship, gender inequality, and a lack of teachers, resources and infrastructure. The total number of out-of-school children through age 15 is 120 million.

Our efforts focus on the most vulnerable, at each stage of development. In early childhood, we help children develop a strong foundation. We help primary school children gain equal access to education, so they can learn reading, basic maths and essential life skills. And we help adolescents with applied skills to assist them in everyday life.

Rather than simply increasing enrolment and providing one-off resources, we focus on education quality. We mobilise communities and local partner organisations to manage initiatives themselves. And we integrate activities with our work in health, water, livelihoods and emergencies – all part of our community development approach – to truly make a lasting difference.
