Education is the key to a brighter future, yet 39% of people living in poverty worldwide have no formal education at all. By providing access to quality education, we’re not only empowering each individual; we’re empowering communities and countries to break out of the poverty cycle.
Education enables upward socioeconomic mobility and is a key to escaping poverty. Over the past decade, major progress was made towards increasing access to education and school enrollment rates at all levels, particularly for girls. Nevertheless, about 260 million children were still out of school in 2018 — nearly one-fifth of the global population in that age group. And more than half of all children and adolescents worldwide are not meeting minimum proficiency standards in reading and mathematics.
This month’s goal:
That’s why this month’s Global Goal of the month is Goal number 4: Quality education for all. A goal focused on ensuring inclusive and quality education for all and promoting lifelong learning.
At Clarity, we feel extremely passionate about this. It is such an important goal and one that we prioritize in our everyday giving.
At Clarity, we make an impact through our web events and Getting Clear workshop. With every workshop graduate/event attendee, Clarity will protect a young girl from sex trafficking by keeping her in school. Each attendee on a web event gives a day of e-learning access to a child in India.
