“Education is the single best investment in prosperous, healthy and equitable societies.”
– UN Food & Agriculture Organization
In many countries around the world, education is considered a luxury and not a right. Instead of spending their time in schools, children are working alongside their parents or caring for younger siblings while their parents work. This is unfortunate because education is the single biggest factor in an individual’s empowerment and ability to provide for his or her family.
