We believe that every child should have a chance to determine their destiny not just a few lucky ones. With that in mind, Ann Foundation works with children and young adults in orphanages, schools and vocational institutes across the developing world, helping to provide them with a brighter future through educational programs and training.
Some of these programs impart practical and language skills; others focus on cultivating a child’s creative talents and personal development. These programs supplemented by peer-to-peer engagement, and mentoring programs, both of which help disadvantaged children to build their own self-worth, and become functioning and happy members of society.
Our programs focus on:
- Providing English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction
- Providing Information and Communication Technology (ICT) education
- Aiding a child’s personal development, by building their confidence and self-esteem storytelling, discussions, games, role-playing, and introducing them to role models.
We collaborate with locally-based grassroots partners who understand and recognize the culture and language of their community, as well as their community members’ hopes and dreams. We then adapt our programs according to the community’s literacy needs and each student’s needs, so that these children and young adults can learn, grow and develop at their own pace, and in a comfortable environment.
