WE NEED ACTION:


  1. ​We need better quality education: Some 125 million school children around the world are unable to read a single sentence, even after four years of attendance – a waste of $129 billion a year.(Source)

  2. We need more schools with better access for all students, regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion, or economic level. Today, 57 Million Children, half of them from conflict-affected areas. Children from the wealthiest 20% of the population are 4 times more likely to be in school than the poorest 20%. (Source) (Source)

  3. We need education that focuses on more than young children, but that also targets the lost generation of young adult learners – particularly women.  In 2011, there were 774 million illiterate adults, a decline of just 1 per cent since 2000. The number is projected to fall only slightly, to 743 million, by 2015. Almost two thirds of illiterate adults are women. The poorest young women in developing countries may not achieve universal literacy until 2072.  (Source)

  4. We need to combat high drop-out rates by supporting teachers and families that help keep kids accountable and in class. As of 2012, 31 million primary-school pupils worldwide dropped out of school. An additional 32 million repeated a grade. In the sub-Saharan, 11.07 million children leave school before completing their primary education. In South and West Asia, that number reaches 13.54 million. (Source)

About Us

WE NEED EDUCATION:


  1. ​​Education is a fundamental right and the basis for progress in every country. (Source)

  2. One year of education is equal to a 10 per cent wage increase, and stops the cycle of transmitting poverty between generations. (Source)

  3. More education is linked to a longer lifespan: On average across 15 OECD countries, a 30-year-old male tertiary graduate can expect to live another 51 years, while a 30 year-old man who has not completed upper secondary education can expect to live an additional 43 years.(Source)

  4. Education empowers women to make healthy decisions about their lives. For example, women in Mali with a secondary level education or higher have an average of 3 children, while those with no education have an average of 7. (Source)

  5. Education is linked to happiness: Adults who have attained higher levels of education are generally more likely to portray greater satisfaction in life than those with lower levels of educational attainment. (Source)

  6. Only 2% of humanitarian aid was invested in education in 2013.(Source)
