Education is central to development. It is the primary vehicle by which economically and socially marginalized adults and children can lift themselves out of poverty, better understand and improve their health, create sustainable livelihoods and obtain the means to participate more fully in their communities. It has been proven that education is a great driver of social, economic and political progress; as people learn to read, count and reason critically, their prospects for health and prosperity expand. Hence, when children have an access to education, it furthers their opportunities, providing knowledge and skills, preparing them for employment and entrepreneurship, and shapes their worldview. Education is perhaps the most adaptable tool for unlocking resources required to address poverty and its crippling effects. Knowledge gives children the power to dream of a better future and the confidence needed to pursue a full education, which in turn will help generations to come.
