We believe a quality education is a human right for everyone, regardless of race, socioeconomic status, gender, or nationality

 

Issues we seek to solve:

An opportunit gap (disparities in access to quality schools) between affluent and non affluent students continues to widen in manY countries

  • In the United States, fewer than 10% of children growing up in poverty will make it to and through college
  • 92% of Ghana's 2nd graders cannot read English or their native langauge 
  • 4 out of 10 indigenous Australian students fail to meet annual reading and math standards 
  • Fewer than 30% of poor children in Haiti will complete primary school
  • If all students in low income countries left school with basic reading skills, the number of people living on less than $1.25 a day would be reduced by 12% - lifting nearly 200 million people out of poverty

There is need for 3.3 million primary and 5.1 million lower secondary teachers worldwide to provide all children a basic education

  • Chad has just one pre-primary teacher for every 1,815 children of this age group
  • Niger reports just 1,059 trained lower secondary school teachers in 2010 - compared to 1.4 million children of lower secondary school age - meaning only one trained teacher for every 1,318 children
  • In Mali, only half of all primary school teachers are trained - and only a quarter of these have had training lasting six months or longer 
  • Some countries count those who have completed primary school and a one-month training course as trained 
  • Thirty one countries report that fewer than three quarters of teachers are trained (to any accepted national standard)

  • An estimated 90% of children with disabilities in the low income and lower-middle income countries do not go to school
  • Children with disabilities, especially girls are often at a higher risk of being victims of violence than their peers without disabilities
