Areas of Impact
Through Tostan’s holistic, empowering, and community driven model, adults and adolescents with little or no experience with schooling learn about their human rights, including and especially their human right to education. Together, with Tostan’s support, local people develop their own vision for their community’s development, leading to the sustainable improvement of communities’ governance, health, and quality of life.
Dialogue is generated on the importance of education for women and girls in particular, emphasising how their participation is integral to community success.
