What can we do about the fact that 1 in 3 children is growing up illiterate? With no access to a quality education, the predictable future for these children is life-long destitution, violence, and exploitation. It’s no wonder the UN considers education to be an essential human right. Amarok Society, working with some of the poorest mothers in the world, is breaking this cycle. Amarok Society goes into the poorest slums in the developing world to teach illiterate mothers. Those mothers then teach everything they’ve learned to children in the neighborhood. Not only do they become community leaders, these remarkable women are moving thousands of children from destitution to university.
