Educating children means community development. It leads to improved health, economics, and social progress.
Health & Education
People who are unable to understand basic hygiene or read a doctor’s instructions are 18 times more likely to suffer from easily preventable illnesses.
Uneducated populations in developing Sub-Saharan nations are particularly vulnerable to the ongoing HIV/AIDS epidemic. In Ghana, only 31% of young people have a comprehensive knowledge about the transmission of HIV/AIDS.
Creating educated communities has a substantial impact on people’s health.
Economics & Education
Students are more likely to stay in school longer if they have access to a better education. Staying in school translates into a 5% increase in a country's GDP.
Stronger and more accessible education fosters technological advancement and entrepreneurship for a new economy. In Ghana, for this reason, Information Communication Technology has been made a primary school requirement since 2007.
Investment in education matters; it means greater development through skills and innovation.
Society & Education
Quality education empowers individuals to make creative contributions to their communities in the forms of art, philosophy, and music. These contributions generate new identities that serve as guides in a changing world.
Primary school is where the foundation for creative expression is nurtured. If they are not in school, then they join the 34% of Ghanaian children who are forced into child-labor.
The removal of children from schools is destructive, and the whole society suffers for it.
