Schools are the epicenters of learning--but a school that is mismanaged or fails to provide students with the education they need can jeopardize future success. Many schools are overcrowded, with too many students per teacher. Teachers may also require training, or teach curricula that is above their students’ actual grade level. Schools in developing countries often charge fees that prevent low-income students from attending, or lack enough learning materials for each student. Even if schools have access to technology, they may not have the infrastructure to keep the technology running long-term. Teachers may also be unaware of how the technology works, so it remains virtually useless in a classroom.

World Education supports schools to counter these issues and improve the quality of learning they provide. We work with school administrators to supplement or relieve school fees for the poorest students by establishing income-generating activities at their schools. We train teachers to become more effective educators and provide curricula that get students back on track and learning at the appropriate level. We also train teachers how to use computers and related technology and design lessons for students to specifically use with this technology. We also design and implement systems that allow classroom technology to avoid electrical shortages and software malfunctions so that it remains a reliable learning tool.
