The following is a guest blog post from World Education, an International Dot Day partner. World Education is an international nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of the poor through education, and economic and social development programs.
World Education’s #Pages4Progress campaign builds awareness about the critical need to improve access to education around the globe.
The #Pages4Progress and International Dot Day communities are partnering to help millions of people around the world who cannot read or write.
Participating in #Pages4Progress helps raise both awareness and funds that enable World Education to continue to build communities’ capacity to improve access to high-quality education. A few examples include:
- Basic education, technology, and livelihoods training for migrant youth in Indonesia;
- Education and critical support services ranging from health care, child protection, and psychosocial support for orphaned and vulnerable children in Swaziland and Zimbabwe; and
- Training for job-readiness, literacy skills, and college mentoring for adult learners in the U.S.
World Education is delighted to join forces with the International Dot Day community and invite all of you to participate in our #Pages4Progress campaign to Make Your Mark for education and literacy!
Participating in #Pages4Progress is really simple. Register and submit the pages you’ve read this summer at pages4progress.worlded.org. Together, we can help improve the lives of the poor through education.
Here are three easy steps to #MakeYourMark for millions of people around the world who cannot read or write:
- Sign up and log the pages you read at pages4progress.worlded.org and help us reach as many pages as possible by International Dot Day on September 15.
- Tell us why reading is important to you. Use the hashtag #Pages4Progress to share on social media (and make sure your post is public so we can see it).
