Z_(Inactive)_The Need

According to World Bank reports, there are 5.5 billion people in developing countries, and “many barely survive on less than $2.00 a day, and often less than $1.00 per day.” The most vulnerable of these are orphans, children and youth without food and shelter, family or social support, and often without the ability to even provide for the most rudimentary of needs.

These people are seen only as drains on their societies, until they die, UNLESS someone recognizes the potential of these people in need. “By investing in people, education is a powerful driver of development and one of the strongest instruments for reducing poverty and improving health, gender equality, peace, and stability.” “Investments in quality education lead to more rapid and sustainable economic growth and development. Educated Individuals are more employable, able to earn higher wages, better cope with economic shocks, and raise healthier children.”
