Barriers To Education
Our barriers to education project
In 2000, the world made a promise that every child would have access to education by the year 2015. This monumental effort made sure that 85% of Children have access to the education they deserve. As it currently stands, 15% of the worlds children do not have access to an education - leaving 59,000,000 children without one.
To make sure that universal education provision doesn’t slip from the political agenda the world made a new promise: that the final fifteen percent – those 59 million children – would, by the year 2030, have access to quality education.
Education 4 Everyone is an implementation partner of the ‘Teach The World’ project, run by the explorer and education advocate Justin Miles. The project is geared towards younger audiences because the children that we can engage with and motivate now will be, in fifteen years’ time or possibly more when we’re in the final battle to help every child go to school, the business people, the educators and the political leaders who can actually make universal education happen if they are educated on the barriers which currently prevent it. More information may be found on the Teach the World project website.
Education 4 Everyone supports projects around the world, both in developed and developing countries, which are working to remove barriers to education in the areas they operate in. Support may include, building a new classroom; paying the salary for a new teacher or supplying educational materials and uniforms for pupils.
