Summary

Since 2006, Visions for Children has been committed to ensuring that every child is given the opportunity to obtain a basic education with which they can acquire fundamental skills. We particularly build on and contribute to the fourth sustainability goal of the United Nations' Agenda 2030 - namely to ensure an equitable and high-quality education. We see schools as anchor points that give children the chance of a self-determined future by means of capacity building within the entire region.

Challenge

The right to education is a human right and essential for the chance at a better life. In times of conflict, poverty and inequality, however, many children are denied this chance: Worldwide, around 60 million children have no access to primary education and roughly 387 million children are unable to acquire basic skills, despite attending school (Global Education Monitoring Report, UNESCO, 2017).

Solution

Our vision is to create a world in which every child can read and write. We concentrate on volatile regions in unstable economic and political conditions, where we establish sustainable learning conditions for children: We build schools and sanitary facilities and we equip classrooms, students and teachers. With workshops, we furthermore strive to strengthen the capacities of our target groups based on the principle of helping others help themselves.

Long-Term Impact

By working exclusively with local partners and involving the target group directly on-site, we are committed to making a long-term difference. Therefore, we adopt a holistic approach by providing both the necessary infrastructure as well as developing the capacities and skills of the teachers and students. Furthermore, we create ownership in the entire school community, so that they can identify with the new structures, develop personal responsibility and maintain the achieved progress.
