Education is not only a systematic approach to gaining knowledge, but it is also a source of empowerment. The unfortunate reality is a high percentage of individuals in rural Africa do not have access to a quality education and are being left behind. Boys between the ages of 6 and 11 will never attend school. Marginalization consistently impedes the education of female and rural students in Africa.
While African governments are taking steps toward advancing the quality and accessibility of education, there is still room for improvement. Enrollment rates for primary and secondary students are steadily increasing; however, performance levels are dropping. Schools are unable to keep up with the influx leaving a shortage of quality teachers.
Our community center will curb the education disparity and provide qualiity training for teachers as well.
