Programs that give children hope

Especially through these years of COVID children have struggled and spoken of not having hope for the future. But the issues are greater than only COVID.

Poverty, fuelled by a lack of education is a major cause. Also poor health, often caused by a drastic lack of safe clean water, is a huge cause.

Over 58 million children don’t have opportunities and are failing to learn for the simple reason that they cannot attend school. If they do have access often the quality of schooling is not high and may even focus on other things other than the children.

And it’s not only children, 200 million young people leave school without the skills they need to do well in life and 775 million adults don’t have the most basic abilities to read and write – and 64% of these adults are women. *
