Meet Jessica: a Luminos Student 

Growing up in rural Liberia, Jessica’s family didn’t have enough money to send her to school. Finally, at the age of 11, Jessica enrolled in the Luminos Fund’s free catch-up education program. Within six months, Jessica progressed from not recognizing the alphabet to being one of the best readers in her class with big dreams for her future. All she needed was a real second chance to learn.

There are over 78 million primary-school-aged children like Jessica who are out of school globally. The Luminos Fund’s mission is to ensure no child is ever denied the chance to learn. Join us and help give children like Jessica a second chance at education.
