How schools, kindergartens and other educational facilities help in Africa
Many children in Africa are still unable to go to school. We are committed to ensuring that they can exercise their right to education. One way we achieve this is
by building new schools.
In many African countries, the number of illiterates is high. Many people cannot read or write because they have not attended school. Girls are often excluded from attending school. Often there is a lack of money for school attendance or awareness and understanding in the family.
Most children are involved in the family's daily household chores, and girls have particularly heavy responsibilities here. Parents are skeptical about schooling,
often because they have never attended school themselves.
The importance of school attendance is immense, and not only in Africa. Because education has a positive impact on all children and is at the same time the key against poverty and for a better future. Education is a human right and is enshrined in both the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
