Why it Matters

1 out of 3 children worldwide never sets foot in a classroom.

Universal education has proven to be the most effective means of eliminating endemic poverty; every year of school increases an individual’s earning capacity by 10 percent or more.  The covid pandemic has deepened the global learning crisis. More than 24 million learners, from pre-primary to university level, are at risk of never returning to school.
