No child should be denied an education. Every child deserves to learn.

Breaking down barriers to learning

All children deserve a good education. But 1 in 3 children globally don’t even receive a quality primary education, and the consequences are far-reaching. Children who aren’t in school are at greater risk of exploitation, child marriage, and lower earning potential. For those who are in school, issues like poorly trained teachers, large class sizes and lack of learning materials mean that too many young people still cannot read or write.

As an education charity working globally, World Vision addresses barriers to education and works with communities and local governments to improve access and quality of the education children receive – making sure girls and children with disabilities are included. We focus on early years, primary and secondary education as well as involving families and communities in supporting children’s learning.

Access to quality education

For over 70 years, we've focused on giving girls and boys quality education, helping them to learn, grow and thrive.
