Education

Education is essential to achieving a higher level quality of life. In developing countries many individuals find it difficult to access quality education due to poverty and a myriad of issues. Almost 60 million primary school-aged children are not in school. Out of this number 25% will never go to school. There are four million more girls than boys not in school. Children are not getting the basic education that will empower them as they reach adult age to support their families and communities out of a cycle of poverty. Education helps to arm a child with courage and confidence to better themselves and the next generation. Education also helps them learn how to prevent illnesses and improve their overall health. Ultimately education gives them the tools necessary to improve and secure their livelihood.

Dianne and Lillie Foundation, to ensure sustainable education for girls and boys in a unique way, has begun opening schools in developing countries. We partner with the local communities to ensure that our curriculum is comparable to their government standards and to ensure that our schools are maintained over the long-term. We also incorporate the American curriculum and offer TOEFL training for high school student attempting to apply to schools in the USA.

Finally, our foundation empowers women by providing education and offering microloans to aid them in business. If all women had a primary education there would be 1.7 million fewer malnourished children. Ultimately, women education improves literacy and provides support to their communities.

The cost of education is less than $2 dollars a day. One person’s contribution of $60.00 will help us meet our goals for education for 1 month. Your contribution will help us wrap the opportunity for quality education in developing countries. For the most part, your contribution help us to get one step closer to breaking the cycle of poverty and ultimately lead children, women and communities to a brighter future.

Children may find that there is no nearby school to go to. Not only are there not enough teachers, but the school teacher also may not have the required training needed to effectively help children to learn.

In some instances, when you do not have a classroom, you don’t really have much of a chance of getting a decent education. Children in many countries in Sub-Saharan Africa are often squeezed into overcrowded classrooms, classrooms that are falling apart, or are actually learning outside under a tree.

In Malawi, for example, there are 130 children per classroom in grade 1 on average. It’s not just a lack of classrooms that’s the problem, but also all the basic facilities you would expect a school to have – like running water and toilets.

This is the environment that Dianne and Lillie Foundation education programs become relevant and effective
