Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Yet 56% of elementary-aged children – that’s 387 million around the world – do not meet minimum reading proficiency standards. Development professionals agree that without education, it is almost impossible to break out of poverty. This means that education is at the very heart of sustainable development.
World Vision’s Unlock Literacy Model uses proven techniques and resources to create the right environment for kids to blast through barriers to reading and comprehension with proficiency. We partner with governments, school administrations, teachers and community members to ensure students receive the end-to-end support they need to succeed.
World Vision’s recent work in Nepal is a great example of the power of the Unlock Literacy Model. While 7% of students could read and comprehend a written passage before the Unlock Literacy program, 51% could do so after.
Together with you, we can help vulnerable children live into a future of their choosing by empowering their education today.
At World Vision, stewardship is an integral part of everything we do. In rare cases where donations exceed what is needed, or where local conditions prevent program implementation, World Vision will redirect funds to similar activities to help children and families in need.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
