Hope and education

<p>Education brings hope. In this programme and over the coming year we will be looking at how lives are changing for the better thanks to the hope education brings.</p> <p>In our first Learning World programme we head off the beaten track to Colombia and India but also to Paris, France.</p> <p>Our first report is on the Escuela Nueva – an education model that has revolutionised teaching right across Latin America. The school was founded by Vicky Colbert and she remains its Executive Director. </p> <p>The Escuela Nueva or ‘new school’ model was launched to improve educational standards and address learning inequalities between cities and rural communities.</p> <p>We also speak to Francois Taddei from France who is considered one of the present-day visionaries of education. He shares his ideas and plans on how to enable children to learn. </p> <p>Our last report takes us to India to a tribal village school focusing on girls’ education. The Nanhi Kali project is defying gender discrimination. </p> <p>In India an estimated eight million children do not attend school, the majority of them are girls. Female literacy is about 55% in India, but in remote places like Udaipur, it drops to 27%. This is why Nanhi Kali focuses on girls’ education in very remote tribal villages, like Jhan Jhar Ki Pal, North Udaipur, in Rajastan.<br /> <hr><br /> <a href="http://www.wise-qatar.org/">www.wise-qatar.org</a></p>
