It’s Time to Tackle Learning Poverty – IDW (Code)

February 9 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST



Our new hour-long “CODE Connects – LIVE” virtual events series aims to share the diverse voices, perspectives, and experiences of individuals working to tackle the global learning and literacy crisis. It’s an opportunity to exchange ideas, ask questions and gain insights into CODE’s programming. We invite our supporters, allies, and friends to join us live (via Zoom or Facebook) for our next scheduled event.

Literacy is a gateway that can open the door to a world of opportunities or just as quickly shut it tight. Every day, the doors slams shut for many millions of children in low and middle-income countries around the world. According to the World Bank, a startling 70% of children in low- and middle-income are unable to read proficiently by age 10.  In celebration of Canada’s International Development Week, join our host Nathalie O’Neil for a virtual fireside chat with leading education experts on the issue of Learning Poverty and how we can collectively rise to the challenge of ending it.
