Educating the Next Generation

Jan 17, 2006

Help strengthen the world's next generation by supporting exceptional education efforts! Strong education sets the groundwork for world progress. Statistics show that with greater education economies grow, populations decrease, and overall health is improved. There is work to be done! Today, 130 million children remain out of school and over 880 million youth and adults are illiterate.

Discover more about our partners that sponsor education efforts all over the world. For example, the Uganda Children's Charity Foundation facilitates child sponsorship and scholarship programs to support AIDs orphans. Room to Read has had striking success in 6 south-east Asian countries. They partner with villages to build schools, establish libraries, and provide scholarships for young girls. The children of Nicaragua and El Salvador are supported by Seeds of Learning, an organization that builds schools, classrooms and desks in rural communities. More than 1,000 volunteers have traveled to support their efforts. Groups like Global Volunteers also offer volunteer opportunities all over the world for individuals to teach conversational English and care for children of all ages.
