EDUCATION / Children Global Initiative



Poor access to education is one of the greatest issues facing children in poverty because a full education is a vital component to achieving potential. Education is key to breaking the cycle of poverty because of the uplifting effect it has on other aspects of society. Education stimulates economic growth, improves health, raises crop yields, reduces child marriage, lowers maternal and child deaths, and fights the spread of disease. Aside from making it easier for children to attend school and succeed there, Children Global Initiative and our local partners educate families about saving money, livelihood training, early childhood development and other important issues.
