In CoCoDA, in collaboration with our partners, seeks to create longitudinal programs that support education from pre-school to university.
- Our projects are identified, designed, and managed by our partner communities.
- We support local elementary and secondary education that intentionally prepares for and works toward university attendance.
- We do not provide educational loans. Instead, we ask our scholars to provide leadership and education to others during and after their university education.
- Many of our scholars return to their home villages to be leaders, educators, entrepreneurs, doctors, nurses, etc.
We work closely with governmental educational systems where possible, but also support community educators where educational opportunities are scarce.
Through ongoing work by CoCoDA, partnering with other local non-governmental organizations (NGOs), international organizations like DKA Austria and the local government, educational participation is on the rise and university attendance is significantly higher than the national average in the communities with whom we partner.
