Target areas for the GlobALS program are communities with a low literacy rate, a large population of out-of-school youths, indigenous peoples, and Muslim communities – predominantly coming from depressed, disadvantaged and underserved communities.

The program has instructed more than 1300 learners since its inception in 2011. Every class has a minimum of 30 students and is instructed over a ten-month learning period. Among the learners, 60% are women and 80% are youths.
