Literacy Boost empowers communities in Southeastern Myanmar

November 19, 2019

Nov. 20 marks World Children’s Day. This year is extra special, commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. It is a time to celebrate and a time to demand action for child rights. What will you do? 

Pact in Myanmar is highlighting some of the 63,000 students targeted to benefit from the Advancing Community Empowerment (ACE) project’s education programming, which is supported by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). ACE consortium partner Save the Children is working together with communities and schools using a rights-based approach to foster child protection, positive discipline and the inclusion of marginalized groups. Save the Children plans to provide trainings to improve literacy, child protection and inclusion to 670 classroom teachers and 160 school cluster heads in four townships of Southeastern Myanmar.
