• We have access to educational skills and resources that enable us to increase access to education in places where there is none, and to improve the quality of education in schools that need it
  • We have access to the resources, knowledge and skills, and we want to put them to good use
  • 57 million young children worldwide are unable to attend school

 

Put simply, it's a case of human rights. And education, among human rights, is essential for all other human rights, and promotes individual freedom.

We also do it because:

  • Education reduces poverty and powers economic growth, improves people’s chance of a healthier life, reduces child mortality, reduces the likelihood of women marrying and having children at an early age
  • Education reduces a women's and girls' risk of HIV infection, and improves overall health and wellbeing
