In overcrowded classrooms, access to one-on-one tutoring can be the difference between lifelong poverty and a successful future.
There are wide disparities in income and quality of life across the Philippines. Poverty rates remain high with over 26% of the total population living below the poverty line. Children from the poorest families attend severely overcrowded public schools which impede academic progress. The average classroom has a teacher to student ratio of 1:55.
Pearl S. Buck Foundation’s Pearl S. Buck Foundation’s (PSB) tutoring program gives children access to one-on-one tutors. During a tutoring session, a child can ask questions, receive focused attention, and gain confidence in their ability to learn. Their improved academic performance will better position these disenfranchised children for success, both academically and in the workplace.
$28 Three tutorial sessions for one child
