Receiving a quality education is a human right and the key to ending generational poverty, yet it remains inaccessible for so many.
Our focus regions struggle with low literacy rates and the quality of education is poor, with weak infrastructure, large classes, and absent teachers. Many, especially girls, drop out of school early and very few continue beyond secondary education.
We work with community-based organisations, including Parent-Teacher Associations and School Management committees, training them to better support their educational institutions. Their role within civil society allows local people to drive change according to their own priorities for the good of their children and wider communities. We also support our networks of NGO partner organisations in India to learn from each other.
Our projects in Ghana and India also provide skills and vocational trainings, from entrepreneurship to nursing. We equip young people and women with the education and qualifications to pursue stable careers and generate enough income to educate the next generation.
