World Education brings hope through education to more than half a million children and adults around the world.

We work to increase literacy, ensure girls' access to education, and reduce child labor and human trafficking. Our training programs improve agricultural methods, help displaced peoples, and reduce violence through conflict resolution. We ensure that more people around the world have access to learning—with a strong focus on gender equality.

How do we do it? World Education is a leader in building the skills, talents, and resources of local groups so they can accomplish their missions. We partner with private, public, and nongovernmental organizations and we pay attention to the cultural, linguistic, geographic, and economic context, supporting effective local management and promoting long-term partnerships among local organizations.

World Education's 60-plus years of experience in the field allows us to shape the global education agenda. World Education has worked in more than 50 countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America on long-term multinational and country-specific projects. We currently manage projects in 20 countries.
