Concern’s education strategy

Many people think our education work is simply about building schools. In fact, the most important part of this work is about removing the barriers that stop children attending school.

Education for all

These barriers include poverty, child labour, distance to schools, teacher shortages and discrimination against girls.
 
This work is done within the context of the universal right to education.
 

Improving the quality of education

We’re ensuring that children learn basic literacy, numeracy and life skills in school. We’re doing this by training teachers, providing school materials and strengthening school systems.
