We are absolutely thrilled to present our new, bilingual web site, with an integrated blog, easy-to-navigate dropdown menus, and up-to-date information on the people we care about most: out-of-school children in developing countries.
On our new site, you will find information about who we are and what we are doing. There are beautiful photographs of the children we are supporting, detailed information on all of our current and past projects, along with a fun map that shows their geographical scope. Through our newsletter and blog, and you can learn about our research-driven agenda to integrate new technologies into a more targeted approach to reaching marginalized, out-of-school children.
You can also find posts on issues related to educating children in developing countries, the impact of conflict on children’s education, the importance of technology, stories about out-of school children and successes we’ve had in reaching some of the most marginalized children.
Not sure why girls’ education is important? Have a look at our new website for more information. You will learn that educating girls is a crucial component all development initiatives. An educated mother is better informed and able to provide her children with better health care and nutrition. An educated girl is less likely to marry as a child, and when she does become a mother, an educated woman is more likely to ensure that her own children go to school, thus reinforcing the positive cycle of education.
There is something for everyone on our new website. If you missed a blog post or newsletter, you can find it in News and Events. If you are a Canadian charity looking to partner with us, we’ve posted information on our criteria for project selection in Our Projects.
