Education is Power
“Education is the passport to the future.”
Education is a right every child must have. It forcibly breaks barriers that children of poverty are shackled to. It allows them to grow and creates a better future for themselves as well as their families and community. The education system helps children build life skills and supports them socially and emotionally providing them with a healthier childhood allowing them to escape all sorts of hardships, trauma and in some cases violence. Education is indeed the most powerful tool to change the world. (Say “are those who know equal to those who do not know?”) [39:9]
“The main hope of a nation lies in the proper education of its youth.”
Education is key in abolishing the endless poverty orphans face daily. If these orphans reach the age of 18 without education, a distressing life on the streets is inevitable.
Impacting a Wider Community
Educating an orphan or a child in need will have a positive, ongoing effect on their community. “Knowledge has a beginning but no end.”
