Education and Life Skills
When children have access to quality education, they become lifelong learners, contribute to society and protect themselves from violence and harm. World Vision works with local partners and communities to remove barriers to a quality education and equip parents and educators with tools and training, so that every child can learn and have life skills that will enable them to reach their fullest potential.
