For kids growing up in impoverished communities, education is often their only chance to break poverty’s grasp. But poor learning environments and a lack of support cause many children to lose hope and drop out of school.
What if you could give struggling kids access to the extra support they need? That’s where Children International’s Education Pass can make a difference for $20 a month.
When kids fall behind in class, they often have no way—and no one to help them—catch up. Meanwhile, learning opportunities pass them by because they don’t have access to computers and other technology.
When you fund an Education Pass for only $20 a month, you ensure that every month, four kids can participate in one of Children International’s tutoring or computer skills classes.
Children International’s 13 field agencies, located in 10 countries, offer tutoring in math and literacy skills.
Tutoring assistance helps kids learn basic skills, pass their current grade and feel more confident about the future.
Our reporting shows that after tutoring, CI’s kids had increased proficiency: 89 percent in mathematics and 91 percent in literacy.
As our kids mature and join the workforce, they’ll need computer skills to write resumes and find (and keep) good jobs.
