children isn't able to even learn the minimum

We have a learning crisis, with one in six children and adolescents worldwide still not reaching minimum proficiency levels in reading or mathematics.

75%

still haven't become literate after 5 to 6 years in school in Ghana

The chance of a poor student in Ghana making it over the minimum learning threshold is very low. Only 41.5% even attend school at all if the child is from a low-income household.

57%

Men earn twice as much as women on average in Ghana

Education has a strong effect on closing the earnings gap. With no education, men earn 57% more than women, but the gap shrinks to 24% among those who can attend primary school.

We're on a mission to change that.

Why education matters

Education is the key to personal growth

When children learn to read and write, they become confident in their ability to succeed. It empowers to develop personal strength and to pursue own hopes and dreams.

Education combats poverty

Through having access to better job opportunities, these former students are now able to give part of their earnings to their families, breaking the cycle of poverty not only for themselves, but also for their relatives.

Education changes the entire community

When they graduate, they will put their acquired skills into action — go to work, start their own business, innovate, produce and bring capital and knowledge to the whole community.

Our approach on impacting the life of others

Build homes

We built a shelter for young children and adolescents, who are in need of a new home to feel be loved again and to be able to create their own future.

Start programs

Our programs help children and adolescents in need. They are looked after by us and we provide an environment where they can learn and prosper.

Invest in partnerships

We form partnerships with schools, to extend their buildings, staff, and materials so that these children can start following their own dreams.

Our promise

“We equip our students with the tools they need to go out into the world and shape it for themselves.”

Founder of Günter Frey International School in Tuba
