Education

 

Our goal

 

Education is the path out of poverty. The families we work with know this, but many live far away from schools and have little income to support their children.

 

World Vision believes that improving the functional literacy of children will give them more opportunities to overcome poverty and live life in all its fullness.

 

We work hard so that children, especially the most vulnerable, have access to quality education.

 

 

World Vision engaged 222,268 Filipino children in education program initiatives in 2015.

How do we provide opportunities for learning?

 

 

To improve the functional literacy of children, we partner with the Department of Education and local government units.

 

We collaborate with parents, volunteers and communities to improve learning in school, after school, and at home. We teach responsible parenting and literacy building to parents and community members. 

 

 

We want children to:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Equitably access and participate in learning programs

  

 

Learn with quality

  

 

Be able to complete the learning cycle

 

  

 

Live in a safe, protective and resilient environment

 

 

   

We improve access to education

 

 

  • Culture of Reading includes components on improving parents’ capacity to care for and support their child’s learning. We promote reading activities to hone children’s reading skills and their love for books.
     
  • Life Skills Model organizes children in groups to link them with other children their age while developing their skills.
     
  • Child Protection Advocacy focuses on strengthening the child protection system on both formal and non-formal elements at the community level.

  • ABK3 means Pag-aaral ng Bata para sa Kinabukasan 3. The initiative seeks to reduce and combat the worst forms of child labor in sugarcane areas through education.

Child participation


Child participationFilipino children can make a big difference and for them to believe this; they need to know that their voices and opinion count. We work with children to empower their participation in the communities by allowing them to be leaders through various programs.
