Investing in education is the single most effective way of reducing poverty and inequality. Education is more than reading, writing, and arithmetic– it is the most important economic investment a country can make in its people and its future. If all students in low-income countries left school with basic reading skills, 171 million people could be lifted out of poverty. As Frederick Douglass so infamously said: “Once you learn to read, you will be forever free”. Smile Education Foundation aims to encourage the scholastic growth and freedom of every child, in the hopes of dissolving the cyclical restraints of poverty and improving livelihoods by developing skills and educational wealth.
We don't just aim for literacy– we aim to inspire and encourage the scholastic growth, development, and interest in every individual student.
