Baraket now studies in a government class after graduating from a Speed School. His mother, Sheto, participated in a collective savings group with other Speed School mothers. She has recently been able to set up a coffee shop and can now afford to send all her children to school.
At the Luminos Fund, we’re helping children—especially those affected by poverty, conflict, and discrimination—get back to learning. Through our network of partners, we run accelerated learning programs that help children gain the equivalent of three years of education in the space of just one year. The results have been fantastic. We’ve helped educate over 100,000 children, and 96% of students successfully transitioned into mainstream schooling upon graduation. That’s great, but we need to significantly scale up our reach if we ever hope to get the world’s 120 million out-of-school children back to learning. That’s where you come in.
