Promoting Basic Children's Education Programs

Wednesday, 5 December 2012
Basic academic programs provide for academic and welfare needs of children. These programs provide children, particularly those from low-income and socio-economic backgrounds, access to basic education, healthcare, and nutrition. Apart from funding, these programs also provide infrastructure, promote sponsorship, and facilitate legal support for children's welfare in crisis communities. Below are examples of established tutoring programs in the United States and around the World.

The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) Learning Plus-The UNICEF Learning Plus is an initiative of our Basic Education and Gender Equality program. Learning Plus promotes child-friendly schools (CFS) that go far beyond their traditional mandate for education: They are one-stop centers for a broad range of essential services. Learning Plus schools feed children, whether through lunches or take-home meals. The program also provides immunizations, micronutrients, deworming treatment, hygiene, and health education programs for the prevention of disease. They also provide care and support for orphans and other vulnerable children-an especially urgent need in countries greatly affected by armed conflict, AIDS and poverty
.Basic Education Assistance for Mindanao (BEAM)- The Basic Education Assistance for Mindanao, or BEAM project, is a Philippine Department of Education (DepEd) project aiming to improve the quality of and the access to basic education in Southern and Central Mindanao. It is funded by the Government of the Philippines (GoP) and the Government of Australia (GoA) through a AUD$36 million grant from the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID).

Promoting these programs is essential in order to gain the support and sponsorship that they need. Apart from high-impact marketing campaigns, one effective but affordable alternative is printing small-scale promotional materials. Examples of these include flyers, brochures, pocket folders, stickers, bookmarks, postcards, catalogs, booklets, posters, and canvas prints. Printing companies offer wholesale orders of prints at low or even discounted rates. Online printing companies like Uprinting, even offer convenient discount coupons on printing posters, postcards and canvas prints online.
