Since 2014, the Breteau Foundation has been supporting disadvantaged primary school-aged children globally by providing access to quality education and distributing education content, technology and training to diverse education settings in more than 14 countries. Our work has reached over 33,000 children, teachers and schools in Latin America, Asia, Lebanon and South Africa and we have ambitious goals to achieve our vision of a world where every child can access quality education, regardless of their background or location.
Access to education is a basic human right for all children, yet currently education is inaccessible to many children worldwide, and education quality is not guaranteed. Children in 32 low-middle income countries have the lowest numeracy and literacy rates and since Covid-19, this has been further exacerbated with a loss of almost 2 million trillion hours of learning globally.
Now more than ever, the education and digital divide is growing and in need of our attention. The Breteau Foundation's programmes and initiatives are working directly to minimize this gap through accessible, agile and bespoke programmes tailored to address the multiple barriers experienced by disadvantaged communities.
