Developments of Literacy Abbey and Reed

This community is called the Developments of Literacy. The organization helps with educating unprivileged students, especially girls, by creating and operating student centered model schools.

The Developments of Literacy believe that all children should have quality education so that they can be successful.

Malala Yousafzai, someone who is a big part of the Developments of Literacy, is also known for being the youngest Nobel Peace Prize Laureate at the age of 17. The community thanks Malala for bringing attention to one of the biggest issues happening in the world today.

The organization's main and first focus was to help the children in Pakistan with their education. Although, problems such as no schools or centers, a weak curriculum, and illiterate children were issues that had to be faced. There was limited accesses to education in Pakistan.

Other obstacles such as students dropping out of school were bad, but luckily it was only 1.5%. 47% of students become employed as skilled workers such as teachers and field researchers.

The people of the Developments of Literacy built, operated, and managed 126 child-friendly school campuses in different parts of Pakistan. This impact provides education for students from Nursery to Grade 10. The curriculum of the Developments of Literacy also helps with students' education by providing the materials needed for them to succeed in their learning.

People can become involved by volunteering within the community. This includes teaching, skill based management, and administrative projects.

Education is important for everyone. People should be allowed to have learning abilities that are taught throughout schooling. The Developments of Literacy are trying to expand their community so that all people of under-developed countries can gain learning skills to succeed in life.
