Whole Child Model: Education, Health & Engagement



Partners like you can help children live healthier lives and succeed in school. The Whole Child Model focuses on education, health and engagement to create conditions of success in school and beyond. We provide scholarships to girls, improve teaching methods and strengthen school management. We dig wells, build latrines, train teachers to help kids stay healthy and provide school health kits. We work with parents and communities to create an environment of success. Together we make a difference.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Many children in the developing world, especially young girls, fail to finish primary school. They attempt to learn in overcrowded classrooms with no supplies; teachers are often late or absent and have limited training; and girls and boys are hungry, tired and sick and have little access to clean water and sanitation. These preventable circumstances continue the cycle of intergenerational poverty.

How will this project solve this problem?

The Whole Child Model builds the conditions of success in schools through interactive learning, local language instruction, early childhood education, and girls' empowerment. It creates healthy learning environments through school health policy and medical supplies, clean water, latrines, nutrition, and health workshops for teachers and students and promotes engagement in learning through community partnerships, effective school management, parental engagement, and cross-cultural exchanges.

Potential Long Term Impact

The Whole Child Model creates the conditions of success in school and empowers parents and communities to maintain a healthy learning environment for their children. We have reached over 8,000 students in 34 schools in Guinea with programs in education, health and engagement. Our goal is to expand to 50 schools, reaching over 12,000 students and 400 teachers and constructing dozens of wells and latrines, and establish proof of concept for an educational model to be adapted worldwide.
