International Literacy Day

158One World Education launched our website and fall curriculum on a day close to our mission, International Literacy Day. At the Martin Luther King Public Library in Washington, DC on Monday September 8th, One World Education showcased its programming at an event hosted by the Reading Across Continents Project. There, high school students from Washington, DC, Abuja, Nigeria and Accra, Ghana shared in person, presentation and video documentary their interest in learning about their different cultures through dialogue.

One World Education’s goal is to empower youth to share and return their experiences back to classrooms so they can serve as valuable teaching tools for other students. We believe that when educators teach with resources students can relate, engagement, learning and achievement will all increase.

With the help of so many people, the idea of our programming, which developed close to two years ago, is now online and entering classrooms around Washington, DC and beyond. Over the next few months our Pilot Program will take place in the public, charter and private schools of Washington, DC.

Please share with us how One World Education can expand our resources to meet a greater number of students. If you think One World Education's mission and curriculum can be a valued part of a learning environment you are familiar with, please pass us on.
