The children in our communities don't have to stop learning when the sun sets. A light bulb gives them more time in the day for homework and helps them improve in school.

Why It Matters

In rural areas, children are two times less likely to attend school than their urban counterparts. Typically, the most impoverished children are the least likely to be able to attend.

There are about 61 million children—or one out of every 10—in the world without access to education. And roughly 49 percent of those children are predicted to never enter a school.

More than 95 percent of the children without access to education live in the developing world. For families living in poverty, the quest for education presents itself as a double-edge sword: Not only is school too expensive, but their families need more field-work help to provide income, or help gathering water for the family.

Outreach is helping thousands of children access education in Haiti.

96 percent of children in our schools have passed their exams and are able to access further education.
Outreach is helping children in India gain access to early education and preparing them to continue on to receive a high school education.

Nearly 40 percent of the children in our communities in Malawi now have a school nearby, and we are continuing to help Malawian families find more options for education.

Now, years later, 53 percent of children in our communities have access to every school supply they need, and we are continuing to help the remaining children access supplies.

Helping thousands of families in Zambia learn the importance of education, villages have made schooling a top priority.

With a community effort to expand options for education, more than 40 percent now have access to adequate schooling.

Future Farmers of Bolivia

Kids from a number of Outreach’s partner communities in Bolivia have been focusing on "field studies" recently, maintaining their schools' greenhouses to explore the nuances of crop cultivation, do some light gardening, and pose for some of the...
