THE CAUSE

Education is the great equalizer.

An extra year of primary or secondary school can increase a child’s future earning potential by as much as 25 percent. Access to safe schools, trained teachers, textbooks, supplies and tuition fees can help to break the brutal cycle of poverty.

Yet, today, 57 million primary school-aged children are not in school, and more than half of those uneducated children are girls. Without intervention, millions of students will not make it past the fifth grade or have the opportunity to attend school at all.


THE FACTS

Around the world, if all students in low-income countries acquire basic reading skills, 171 million people could be lifted out of poverty.

Fifty-three percent of the world’s out-of-school children are girls and 2/3 of the illiterate people in the world
are women.

In the Sub-Saharan, 11.07 million children leave school before completing their primary education.

Children who are born to educated mothers are less likely to be stunted or malnourished.
