NGOs

In countries where there is an obvious need for better education, local non-governmental organizations (NGOs) often form to address this need. However, many NGOs do not have the resources or skills to effect lasting change.

World Education partners with NGOs to ensure that their efforts have real impact. We help NGOs improve their systems and train local staff to be more effective. World Education also connects our programs to NGOs that provide services outside the scope of our work, such as health care. These partnerships enable the people we serve to benefit from a wider range of assistance.

Finally, World Education links NGOs to government so that they can reach more people in need and advocate for necessary changes to public policy.
