Education is a fundamental human right.

Yet 61 million children around the world do not have access to even basic primary schooling.

Education transforms lives. It can bring progress and development to a child, their family and their country as a whole. Yet quality education is still out of reach for millions of children in some of the world's poorest regions.

Why invest in education?

EDUCATION IMPROVES LIFE CHANCES

  • When all children have access to quality education, this opportunity influences generations to come
  • Education is widely considered one of the key conditions for determining peace within societies
  • A child born to an educated mother is 50% more likely to survive past the age of 5.

Education improves health and wellbeing

  • At schools, children learn about healthy hygiene practices, which they can bring into their daily lives
  • A mother who is literate is 50% more likely to get her child immunised.

EDUCATION PROMOTES GENDER EQUALITY

  • Education empowers women to make positive life choices and have ambition
  • In countries where child marriage is common, an education allows girls to make their own choices.

EDUCATION GENERATES INCOME

  • Each additional year of primary schooling could increase a child's future income by 10%
  • 171 million people could be lifted out of poverty if all students in low-income countries left school with basic reading skills.

We are proud to address seven of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through our school projects and their long-term benefits to the communities we support.
