The need

The situation

The facts speak for themselves, young people worldwide and especially in lower income countries, are not getting the education they deserve and are not being adequately prepared for the future.

  • 1 in 5 children, adolescents and youth worldwide are still not attending school (UNESCO, 2018).
  • Schooling does not lead to learning and 1 in 6 children & adolescents leave school without a basic level of reading and maths skills (UNESCO, 2018)
  • Many schools face shortages of teaching staff and those in place lack necessary training.
  • Students are learning content that will have minimal application to their lives - key personal skills and attributes are not being taught.

Why Education Matters

Why Education Matters

Meaningful education undoubtfully has the power to transform lives and societies.

Students that are being taught valuable skills are more likely to stay in school and will be better prepared for the future, improving their prospects.

Globally, if we look at the big picture, we know that better quality education and improving prospects, especially through educating girls, can help to reduce birth rates, slow population growth, and build more tolerant, inclusive and peaceful societies.

When thinking of the impact on individuals living in poverty, access to inspiring education can mean having a better chance of overcoming challenges, capturing opportunities and building a more secure and successful life for themselves and their families.

How our work is helping

Our work uses inspiring resources and activties, alongside training to support teachers, to enthuse young people and build valuable skills that can help their future prospects and empower them to better realise their own potential. 

 We know we are a small part of the ‘education jigsaw’, and that is why we endeavour to work closely with governments, local partners and agencies to implement our work, ensuring it complements current or developing curriculums and educational systems.
