About

 

THE CAUSE

Education is the great equalizer.

In developing countries, every additional year of education can increase a person’s future income by around 10 percent. Access to safe schools, trained teachers and supplies can help to break the cycle of poverty.

Yet, today, 59 million children of primary school age are being denied an education, and almost 65 million adolescents are without access to a secondary school. 


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 two-thirds of the illiterate people in the world are women.

More than 20 percent of African children have never attended primary school.

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