Latin American countries rank the lowest in the world in terms of the quality of education (World Economic Forum 2008 survey). Over half of the region’s 15 year olds are functionally illiterate and not even minimally competent in math and science (PISA 2009). Worldfund envisions a future in which all children in Latin America receive the education they need to become productive members of society.
We focus on the key area where we can have the greatest impact: leadership at the school level. Our mission is to deliver world-class training and ongoing support to teachers and principals from underserved schools in Latin America, fundamentally impacting the system from the bottom up.
Worldfund works in partnership with local governments and brings private corporations to the table to invest resources and expertise. Since its founding in 2002, Worldfund has invested over $24 million in education programs, and trained nearly 6,500 educators in Mexican and Brazilian public schools, reaching 3.2 million students.
With your help, we can affect the lives of 3.2 million more students.
