Expanding opportunities for youth in literacy and basic education

World Education joined the World Cocoa Foundation ECHOES (Empowering Cocoa Households with Opportunities and Education Solutions) Phase II consortium to address the education needs in targeted cocoa communities in Ghana, specifically in the Sefwi-Wiawso region. Through an integrated adult and teen literacy program, World Education contributed to the increased participation of community members in education and the improved economic well-being of these communities.

In total, at least 696 adults benefited from ECHOES II’s adult literacy program, and more than 350 out of school teens have completed the teen literacy program. More than 200 of the out of school teens completing the teen literacy program were re-enrolled into a local school and provided with some school supplies for encouragement and motivation.
