”Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”. Nelson Mandela
Ask yourself a question. What the future holds – without education ?
Africa faces having an increasing share of the world's out-of-school and uneducated populations of young people.
The Sustainable Development Goals agreed by world leaders include this target: “By 2030, ensure that all girls and boys have access to quality early childhood development, care and pre-primary education so that they are ready for primary education.”
- 2013 Africa will have one-third of the world’s children but 70% of the out-of-school population – compared to 40% today.
- Over 60% of children will not achieve primary-level skills – compared to 40% today.
- A population lacking skills and opportunity will mean that 90% of the world’s poor will be in Africa.
