THE LIFE YOU CAN SAVE
When it comes to educating our children, the global community has made great strides in recent decades. Global primary school enrollment rates are higher now than they were 25 years ago, and the youth literacy rate is on the rise. More girls are enrolled in school than anytime in the past 15 years, and two-thirds of nations in the developing world have now achieved gender parity in education.
But millions of boys and girls around the world are still being left out. In the developing world, children from the poorest households are four times less likely to be enrolled in school than those from the richest. 57 million children worldwide of primary school age aren’t enrolled in any kind of school program at all.
