SCEO's Educational Solution
Developing countries are rated as countries in the world with a rising illiteracy rate. In developing countries where 60 percent youth are illiterate and only 1 in 3 women in rural areas can read and write, SCEO has been working hard to reverse this trend. SCEO has implemented an innovative solution to helping girls in Developing countries rural and remote areas – SCEO’s home schools – whereby girls who ordinarily face multiple obstacles to obtaining an education are becoming teachers and role models in the community. Together with Glory Baptist Int school and some other schools, SCEO has an educational network which serves almost 1,000 students per year, 80 percent of these students are girls who have historically been neglected. We have coupled the chances of success for these students by promoting vocational training programs after high school whereby male and female students can empower themselves economically by pursuing training in computers and textile design. These students are also mentored to begin careers in the private sector, start their own businesses, or even pursue futures at SCEO.
