That looks like a real page turner!  Students in World Education’s ConnectEd program in China listen attentively as their teacher reads them a story book. World Education partners with the Alcatel-Lucent Foundation in seven countries across the globe to implement the ConnectEd program, which helps disadvantaged youth achieve better learning outcomes.

Blast from the Past

Bandung, Indonesia – 1964

We’re traveling back to the ’60s with this photo!  It depicts a National Training Centre in Bandung where teachers received a year’s training in community education, and then became village community supervisors after completing the training.

Today–46 years later–World Education Indonesia supports disadvantaged youth through the ConnectEd program; helps reach Indonesia’s teachers, administrators, and students through the PRIORITAS program; and aims to reduce poverty by providing low-income people with microfinance opportunities through Good Return.

Now that’s one colorful puppet! Students in Laos put on puppet shows to teach one another about the dangers of unexploded ordinances (UXOs).  The puppet shows are just one component of World Education’s work in Laos to aid UXO survivors and educate those at risk for UXO exposure.
