Why Education Is Vital For Kids In Africa

For kids in Africa education remains a continuing challenge. This is most obvious in East Africa where not only is there a lack of education, but there are also few, if any, job opportunities for school and university graduates who do manage to receive an education.

Despite significant progress over the last decade or so, over 67 million children around the world do not have access to basic education. Education poverty, however, is at its worst in East Africa where people suffer from economies that are unstable as well as droughts and military conflicts which make the provision of education far from a priority.

An educated workforce is necessary to provide long term economic growth for any country and reducing poverty in Africa, where the educational level is so low, will provide long-term opportunities for its people, and any improvement in education will show high returns to the overall community.
