Education is a fundamental right and a crucial tool for personal and societal growth. However, not all children have equal access to quality education. Many face challenges preventing them from reaching their full potential.
According to UNESCO Institute of Statistics (UIS), approximately 264 million children and youth across the globe do not attend school.
Key factors leading to a barrier in access to education:
- Gender Inequality
Girls are still more likely than boys to never go to school.
Children and youth living in conflict-affected areas (i.e. political strife) have limited access to education if they have access at all.
Barriers to upper secondary education are often based on the fact that it is not compulsory, while lower secondary and primary are compulsory in nearly every country. The youth that is of secondary age are also of legal working age. Many are forced to work or go to school and work to help provide for their families.
Education charities aim to address these inequalities and provide children with the support and resources they need to succeed in school and beyond. They focus on improving access to education, enhancing the quality of education, and promoting lifelong learning.
Education charities work with communities, governments, and other organizations to:
- Identify and address the root causes of educational inequality – poverty, lack of resources, inadequate teaching methods, etc.
- Provide direct support to children, such as distribution of educational school supplies, school uniforms, scholarships, mentorship programs, and after-school activities.
Donations to education charities can significantly impact children’s lives, providing them with the opportunities and resources they need to succeed.
