While COVID-19 has inflicted extraordinary damage on education for the most vulnerable children, Luminos is tackling this challenge head-on, bringing laser focus and commitment to ensure every child has a chance to catch up and thrive.
Luminos achieved several significant milestones, including:
out-of-school children served across Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East.
out-of-school children reached during the 2021-22 school year.
out-of-school children served through the launch of a new country program in Ghana.
Establishing a new project in The Gambia, providing curriculum development and advisory services to the government.
Expanding our team of ‘Lumineers’ by more than 58% to support the growth of our education programs – a majority of whom are based in Africa.
The 2021 Annual Report also contains stories of lives transformed through the power of education, including children like Batoul, a Luminos student and Syrian refugee in Lebanon, who is exploring and cultivating her potential in a safe, welcoming classroom.
We highlight an enthusiastic and passionate teacher in Ghana, Adams, who is beloved by all his students.
Siah, a Luminos alumna in Liberia, reflects on the ways our classroom helped prepare her for success getting to 6th grade.
Our 2021 Annual Report tells these stories and more.
While the world has a long way to go before recovering from the consequences of COVID-19, we hope you read the report and share our passion and urgency to help children catch up on education.
Thank you for being a part of the Luminos community.
