Education Program

Education is a human right, enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights at the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. The EFA Global Monitoring Report outlines that education not only helps individuals escape poverty by developing the skills they need to improve their livelihoods, but it also generates productivity gains that fuel economic growth. Yet, many children across the globe have to work to ensure their family’s survival and lack of access to free or suitable education.

Our education programs are designed to build a pathway out of poverty. They provide children with the tools they need to improve critical thinking, problem solving skills, and foster physical and emotional well-being. We build schools, learning centers, and libraries, as well as establish and operate vocational programs that provide free classes to thousands of children globally.

In 2022:

  • Overall 35,050 children gained access to free education
  • In Iran, we provided access toe education for over 25,876 children living in rural or impoverished villages. Additionally, we continues/started construction of 25 schools and vocational schools, completing 3 of them.
  • In the United States, Danesh powered by Moms Against Poverty+InspireTech is a STEM Education program for refugee girls from the Middle East grades 3-12 in Northern California. Launching in the Summer of 2022, Danesh creates a space for learning science/tech that infuses role-modeling, fun, creativity, encouragement, and kindness. As a result, the girls will gain competency and confidence, opening a path for their future growth and opportunities. Learn more…
