OUR THEMES

THEME

EDUCATION

Imagine if you could not read or write. Imagine if you knew nothing of the world that exists beyond your hometown. Imagine if you had no idea how to prevent common illnesses that were devastating your community; or worse, imagine if you did not know your basic human rights, let alone how to fight for them. 

For the 57 million primary school-aged children who are not in school, there is no need to imagine, this is their reality. These children are out of school for a number of reasons: some of them, especially girls, are needed at home to help take care of siblings and to collect water for their family’s use, others are engaged in child labour, some live too far from the nearest school, while others cannot afford to pay for a uniform or the necessary school fees. Whatever the reason, without access to an education, these children remain voiceless and the cycle of poverty continues. 

Education is the best way to empower children, especially girls, with the tools, knowledge, strength, and confidence that they need to promote and protect their own rights, growth, and self- sufficiency. With education, children, families, communities, and even nations can break the cycle of poverty. 

Education provides the highest return of any social investment. In January, Kutoa will be supporting partners who are committed to education, opportunity, and empowerment.
