Action For Education (AFE) is an independent, grassroots organisation founded in the UK and Greece in 2017. The organization is focused on developing projects that build pathways back into education for displaced communities. Through a unique methodology developed over the last year and half, we challenge traditional methods of how emergency education can be carried out in humanitarian contexts.

The Parent-Child Home Program envisions a world where every child enters school ready to succeed because every parent has the knowledge, skills, and resources to build school readiness where it starts: the home. Our nationwide network of program sites provides low-income families with the necessary skills and tools to ensure their children achieve their greatest potential in school and in life.
PCHP’s in-home approach makes it convenient for under-served families isolated by poverty, language barriers, and lack of transportation to participate in high quality, educational early childhood services. Each family is matched with a community-based Early Learning Specialist (ELS) who shares the family’s cultural background and language. Using the book or toy, the visitor models, in the family’s native language, reading, conversation and play activities designed to stimulate parent-child interaction and promote the development of the verbal, cognitive and social-emotional skills that are critical for children’s school readiness and long-term school success.
