ABC- A Better Chance Learning Center
This description of Fatou Jobe's work was prepared when Fatou Jobe was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1998.

Faced with a chronically under-funded public education system and extremely high dropout rates, Fatou is reshaping education for low-income children and providing them with alternative sources of curiosity and motivation.
