The majority of the world’s poor live in the sub-Saharan region and South Asia — comprised of Nepal, Bhutan, India, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Maldives.
Children here do not receive an education because of the lack of schools & teachers – or basic infrastructure necessary to travel to school. In many cases, the uneducated parents find cost of education is unattainable. Too often, having the child work is much more economically feasible.
A lack of basic education has a strong correlation to long lasting cycle of poverty and continuing oppression.
