The story of

Action Education

Mask med

Action Education's story is first and foremost one of vulnerable and marginalised communities, children and adults who, deprived of education, had little hope of improving their future.

But since 1981, millions have been accompanied by our teams on the path to development and can now read, write and count.

In 40 years, so many lives have been transformed.

The goal that all children, without exception and without discrimination of any kind, should have access to quality education is unfortunately not being achieved. There is still a lack of political will to recognise education as a cardinal element.
