In many countries of the world, there is no guaranteed access to schools, instruction, or high-quality teaching. On the contrary – in many places, there is a shortage of classrooms, teaching materials, and teachers. It is our goal to help children in such locations through the Berlitz Educational Foundation.
The educational foundation for children
In collaboration with Plan International, an organization aimed at advancing children’s rights, since October 2006 the Berlitz Educational Foundation has been carrying out projects aimed at improving educational opportunities for children, primarily in Africa. The Berlitz Foundation lets us make a small contribution toward offering children a brighter future by helping them along the path to education.
Current project: Good education for children in Rwanda
47 percent of the Rwandan population are under 18 years of age. While the majority of boys and girls go to school, only about half of them finish primary school. The “Good Education for Children” project aims to improve educational opportunities and early childhood support in twenty primary and secondary schools in the two project regions of Bugesera and Nyaruguru.
This support was very important in 2020, because the Coronavirus crisis particularly affected families with children. Additional measures have been taken, for example, hygiene items have been ordered, radios have been organized for "home schooling", and hand-washing stations have been set up.
The foundation funds will be used for:
- Establishment of kindergartens and facilities for early childhood education
- Training and further education for care personnel, teachers, and parents
- Economic empowerment of parents
- Training for children on children's rights and equality
- Additional help in the Corona crisis, e.g. in the areas of hygiene, education, and information.
With the financial support of this Plan International Project, Berlitz wants to contribute to improving the learning conditions for girls and boys in Rwanda.
