EDUCATION
Donate school supplies or sponsor an education!

Children are our future. According to UNESCO Institute of Statistics (UIS), approximately 264 million children and youth across the globe do not attend school. This includes 61 million children of primary school age, 60 million secondary school age, and 142 million upper secondary school age. This total is equivalent to a quarter of the population of Europe.

Key factors leading to a barrier in access to education include:

  • Gender Inequality
    Girls are still more likely than boys to never go to school
  • Conflict
    Children and youth living in conflict-affected areas (i.e. Political strife) have limited access to education if they have access at all.
  • Cost
    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. Additionally, 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.
