School Education


        Education is a key tool for development and an invaluable means of addressing structural inequality and disadvantage. Providing free and quality education to children reflects the fact that every child is entitled to fundamental human rights and is to be treated with dignity. Primary education provides children with life skills that will enable them to prosper later in life.
