Around the world, more than 264 million primary and secondary-age children are not in school. Without an education, these girls and boys are destined to repeat the same impoverished existence as their parents and grandparents before them. However, one act of compassion can change these odds forever.
The gift of education is one of the most efficient and effective ways out of poverty. Educated boys and girls are more likely to pursue careers, lift themselves out of poverty and provide for their families and children. Generations of families benefit when the cycle of poverty is broken.
