In Sub-Saharan Africa, Equatorial Guinea has the highest adult literacy rate at 93% of the population. We're working to change this by providing quality education at SOS Schools.
In Equatorial Guinea, there is currently one SOS Nursery and one SOS School. These facilities provide education to children from SOS Villages and from the wider community. Staff members are well trained and the resources available to students are of a high standard.
Below you can read an overview of our work with SOS Schools to improve education in Equatorial Guinea.
