Rural Areas

World Education strives to improve access to high-quality education in underserved communities –particularly in rural areas. With more than 60 years of experience, we have a deep understanding of the challenges that prevent people in rural areas from attaining the resources to succeed. Often, rural communities are widely dispersed and the nearest schools are miles away.

World Education tailors our programming to incorporate cultural practices and meet the needs of diverse rural communities. We engage and train community members to champion education, helping parents recognize the value of sending children to school. By training teachers, designing curricula, and improving school management, World Education ensures that students receive quality education. In some rural areas, we support families with income-generating activities so that they can afford to let their children attend school.

Through outreach programs and workshops, World Education engages adults around important issues affecting the community, with a strong focus on women’s empowerment. All of these measures ensure that people in rural areas can further their opportunities.
