According to the
UNESCO Institute for Statistics,
263 million young ones worldwide are still deprived of a proper education to this day.
61 million children are missing out on primary school, 60 million aren’t attending lower secondary school, and a whopping 142 million are failing to attend
any classes in upper secondary school.
Kids in many cultures are deprived of secondary school because they have reached the legal working age and are counted on to support their families.
Countries in Sub Saharan Africa have the highest rates of exclusion in the entire world and
girls are still more likely to miss out on an education than boys.
The main reason for children to remain absent from school is that they are living in conflict-affected areas in which interests are other than educational development.
Basic education and English skills have become the ticket to the future and independence.
People lacking an education and general educational development are unlikely to progress in life as the requirements and expectations of employers are continuously becoming more demanding.
Add to that the constant change in technology which leaves those who are untrained with poor prospects. Unfortunately, this is the fate that awaits the majority of the
population of developing countries.
The developing world is blessed with an excellent education, fluent English-speaking skills, and reputable schools. Are you convinced you have a duty to teach those
who are less fortunate? Take a look at more than 350 volunteer teaching opportunities. Volunteer for education and become a crucial part of leading
youth towards a promising future.
