Unravelling the impact education has on society

Watch this video from the United Nation’s Global Education First Initiative to get the facts 

Desk and notebook

We’ve all heard education is the path to a better life, but the United Nation’s Global Education First Initiative explains what that really means in the video below.

“If all students in low-income countries left school with basic reading skills 171-million people could be lifted out of poverty,” notes the narrator in the video.

At Christian Children’s Fund of Canada, we work to keep children safe from child labour, child marriage and more, so they can go to school and create a brighter future.

Watch the video to learn more about how an education impacts a child, their family and their community.

Sharing is caring:

ABOUT CHILDREN BELIEVE:

Children Believe works globally to empower children to dream fearlessly, stand up for what they believe in — and be heard. For 60+ years, we’ve brought together brave young dreamers, caring supporters and partners, and unabashed idealists. Together, we’re driven by a common belief: creating access to education — inside and outside of classrooms — is the most powerful tool children can use to change their world.
