Summary

Millions of children around the world have no access to education. Teach the World Foundation (TTWF), a global education nonprofit, offers digital, game-based 1-to-1 tablet programs to help children develop literacy, numeracy, and social-emotional learning skills. After 2 years of extraordinarily successful programming in Pakistan and Bangladesh, we are expanding to serve the children of Malawi in January 2019. 100% of funds raised will go toward the launch of this program with 35 children.

Challenge

Malawi is home to 9 million children under the age of 14 - 46% of the total population. Poverty is widespread and the country's development is thwarted by a fast-growing population, food insecurity, malnutrition, and acute limited access to quality education. Uneducated children and adults are more vulnerable to ill health, under-employment, and human rights abuse. There is an urgent need in Malawi to find low-cost, adaptable solutions that can be easily implemented at scale.

Solution

The TTWF model is implemented by high-performing local NGO partners in the countries in which we work. As part of the model, we collaborate closely with partner NGO to train and build their long-term capacity. Training enables locally-hired facilitators to provide safe learning spaces for children, to track children's learning progress and to securely maintain the technology. Capacity-building also includes infrastructure development, scaling support, and long-term planning.

Long-Term Impact

To date, TTWF's learning programs have resulted in dramatic gains in children's learning outcomes. Over 250 children served in out-of-school and in-school contexts in Pakistan and refugee children in Bangladesh have consistently demonstrated learning gains of up to 2.5 greater than those receiving traditional instruction. In 2018, programs in these sites have successfully scaled to serve over 800 children. TTTWF aims to reach millions of children around the world.
