Communities

Support from the community is key to ensuring that individuals within that community can access quality education. Positive changes in behavior and innovative ideas are more likely to succeed when they have the weight of a community behind them.

World Education prides itself on developing programs that are based in the community. We establish and support mothers’ associations, which allow women to advocate for their daughters to attend school instead of entering into early marriage. By training peer educators, supporting public skits and plays, and managing community radio programs, we provide opportunities for people to learn about important issues like gender equality, child rights, and sexual education.

In communities facing economic hardships, savings and lendings groups establish a network of support among members as they generate income together. World Education also links important community centers to other essential services that benefit people in the community, such as healthcare and nutrition programs.
