On School Year, nearly 1 billion children around the world head to class.
More children today are enrolled in pre-primary, primary and secondary education than ever before. However, for most of them, schooling does not lead to learning.
This is because of a lack of trained teachers, inadequate learning materials, and poor sanitation facilities make learning difficult for many children. Other reasons come to school too hungry, sick or exhausted from work or household tasks to benefit from their lessons.
This learning crisis is the greatest global challenge of preparing children and adolescents for life, work, and active citizenship.
Hero School’s Work in Education
Each child has the right to go to school and learn, regardless of where they live, who they are, and how their family will spend the money on education. Quality learning requires safe, qualified, and motivated teachers. It also needs that learning outcomes to be monitored and feedback into instruction.
In five countries around the world, Hero School works to provide learning opportunities that prepare children and adolescents with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed.
