Educationis a fundamental human right. However, many children continue to be denied the opportunity to learn, particularly if they are poor or female. You may join our non-profit organization in addressing this issue.
Increasing access to quality basic education can benefit a society’s overall health and longevity, build economies, and even prevent climate change. However, in many underdeveloped nations, children’s access to education might be hampered by a variety of circumstances.
- A Lack of Funding for Education
According to the Global Partnership for Education, just 20% of education aid flows to low-income nations (GPE). However, in developing nations, providing 13 years of education costs an average of $1.25 per day per child.
- Having No Teacher, or Having an Untrained Teacher
There are insufficient instructors to provide universal elementary and secondary education. Furthermore, many of the teachers who are currently employed are untrained. As a result, children are not getting a good education.
- A Lack of Learning Materials
In many parts of the world, outdated and worn-out textbooks are frequently shared by six or more pupils. Workbooks, exercise sheets, readers, and other essential learning resources are in short supply. Teachers require materials to help them plan lessons, share them with their pupils, and guide their lessons.
- Hunger and Poor Nutrition
Being extremely malnourished to the extent of impairing brain development can be equivalent to failing four grades of school. In contrast, excellent nutrition can be an important part of preparing for successful learning.
