We aim to empower people to work their way out of poverty through education and training. Sadly, many children are denied education for reasons, including chronic poverty and unrelenting violent conflicts which disrupt learning. Most children drop out of school to fend for themselves on the streets.
They do hazardous jobs, just to survive, including scavenging for junks amidst soggy garbage at dump yards. The meagre money they make pays for cheap and less nutritious food and supplements their parents’ incomes. Faced with hardship, parents, in most cases, remove children from school as they are unable to afford the cost. This jeopardises their future sustainable development.
