Nelson Mandela says, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
Education is the key to eliminating gender inequality, to reducing poverty, to creating a sustainable planet, to preventing needless deaths and illness, and to fostering peace. And in a knowledge economy, education is the new currency by which nations maintain economic competitiveness and global prosperity.
It gives us a knowledge of the world around us and changes it into something better. It develops in us a perspective of looking at life. It helps us build opinions and have points of view on things in life.
Education is an investment, and one of the most critical investments we can make.
Today, around the globe, an estimated 61 million primary-aged children are out of school, almost half of them in conflict-affected poor countries. Too often, even those students who do go to school finish without basic literacy and numeracy skills: it is estimated that 250 million children cannot read, write or count well.
Expanding educational access for girls is not just an urgent economic and social need. In many cases, it is literally a matter of life and death. A mother who can read can better protect her children from chronic illnesses, from AIDS, and from dying young.
Hence, our effort to ensure all girls don't miss school due to the lack of knowledge and menstruation solutions. We believe everyone can contribute from various ways and sources. "Alone we can do so much, Together we can change the world."
Education is the foundation of peace and prosperity. Imagine a better world with global commitment to providing better education for women and youth and all of us should reinvigorate our efforts to accelerate progress in improving access, quality and student achievement worldwide.
