Teachers have increased capacity to educate children
WHY CHILDREN’S EDUCATION?
Quality education is critical for the development of children and their entire communities. While there is a 91% primary education enrollment rate in developing countries, this is not an accurate indicator of the quality, accessibility, and equity of the education available. Factors including poverty, gender, conflict, or instability are all linked to the quality of education that students receive. The effects of COVID-19 exacerbated educational inequality, especially in countries where access to remote learning was limited and significant learning gaps already existed. Investing in educational programs can greatly improve students’ chances of breaking the poverty trap.

One Day’s Wages comes alongside grassroots partners to address education barriers and disparities. Since 2009, we have supported 33 children’s education projects in under-resourced communities, impacting over 27,500 children. Through our partnerships, Hadija was able to continue her education throughout the COVID-19 pandemic while supporting her family, and Estefany had the opportunity to enroll in a secondary school that provides holistic education for Maya Ixil youth.
