Teach a Mother, Change the World

Teaching Mothers to Teach Others

This simple concept provides a revolutionary solution to a chronic humanitarian problem.

1 in 3 of the world’s children is growing up illiterate.

How do you reach a child whose slum doesn’t have a school?
Or a girl whose father thinks education is for boys?
Or a boy who needs to be working to support his family?

When there are too many marginalizing factors between a child and their education, a school can’t reach them anymore. But their mother still can.

We empower mothers.

We open schools for mothers. Each mother then goes home and teaches her children and her neighbours’ children everything she’s learned.

Our inclusive curriculum, combined with the dedication and courage of the mothers we teach, can overcome the obstacles that poverty, religion, gender, and disability put in the way of global education.
