An education for the children of every nation, regardless of circumstance or opportunity.
To create and distribute an educational curriculum that encourages academic excellence, sound moral character, and a lifelong love of learning.
To provide hig quality educational materials that are easily reproducible in hard-to-reach areas.
To provide training for the teachers to use the materials.
To develop a library for each school.
Worldwide Educational Resources (WER)brings high-quality educational materials, teacher training and libraries to developing nations, especially Africa.
We see firsthand the transformative power of education to alleviate poverty and build life-sustaining systems.
We also see a huge need for quality education that includes thinking skills, character development, creativity, and cultural literacy.
The usual approach to learning in most developing nations is rote memorization using often outdated materials. Many times the schools have no books at all. Imagine a classroom crowded with children and no books, pencils, or paper.
WER has created an elementary curriculum that instructs with high-quality materials and is currently used in 5 African nations. It can be adapted to a national curriculum and the local culture yet offers a much higher level of learning. We have a teacher training center in Lagos, Nigeria that trains teacher to use our curriculum.
