Children in prosperous countries see math as a “First World Problem” to be endured, but every year kids (and adults) around the world try to make the best of their lives without even rudimentary mathematical knowledge.
Save the Children’s Numeracy Boost wants to change that:

From counting cattle to charting the rainy seasons, these skills aren’t just “good to have.” They are essential to helping children reach their full potential.
