Since its inception in 2018, PILAglobal has enrolled 5,000 children and families in school programs, parenting workshops, and parent & me programs. PILAglobal currently operates 17 classrooms in 5 countries, spanning 3 continents and has provided over 100,000 hours of education worldwide.
The UNHCR estimates that there are currently over 3.7 million migrant and refugee children worldwide who do not have access to education.
