World Vision’s Response
World Vision’s goal is to ensure that all children receive access to basic education that will help them become fulfilled, productive members of their communities.
Increasing access to education
Programs for disadvantaged children—World Vision programs are opening doors for children around the world who might otherwise be denied an education. In Armenia, for example, preschool programs for disabled children allow them to socialize in regular classrooms instead of being isolated at home or in an institution.
School supplies—World Vision helps ensure that poor children have basic supplies like pens, paper and pencils, without which they may be turned away from class.
Advocacy—World Vision advocates for girls’ education to ensure they have the same opportunity as boys to attend school and develop their potential.
Improving classroom facilities
Repairing existing schools—World Vision helps make improvements and additions to schools in places like Afghanistan, where dilapidated buildings have been transformed into safe learning environments benefiting thousands of students.
Providing adult education
Literacy training—In communities around the world, World Vision literacy programs are helping adults learn to read, write and count—establishing a legacy of literacy
that can last for generations.
