The Global Day of Parents is June 1! We’re celebrating by highlighting parents supporting their children’s education.

Student success is based on more than just the performance of teachers and students. Parents are a critical part of the equation and have been instrumental to the success of education programs implemented by Creative across the globe.

A strong support system at home allows students to thrive in the classroom and creates the buy-in necessary to create a culture of education in places where competing priorities often take precedence. Click through the photos below to read how parents in Mozambique, Nigeria, Pakistan and Afghanistan are encouraging education for their children and learning a few things themselves.
