This year, an estimated 72 million additional primary school aged children face learning poverty – meaning they are unable to read and understand simple text by age 10. The World Bank recently released reports on education in the age of COVID that expose this crisis and offer solutions that will help children in low- and middle-income countries.
“In the future, learning should happen with joy, purpose, and rigor for everyone, everywhere”
A Photo Start program offers a consistent, thorough curriculum with the purpose of teaching a variety of professional and life skills that are highly marketable and transferable across many industries. We help youth break the cycle of poverty and create their own bright futures. And no one can deny the joy that learning photography, collaborating with peers, and connecting with the community brings to our students – just look at these smiles!
