  Education’s importance

Education is something of essential importance for the modern world. Yet we often forget how impactful it is for the future and neglect that ensuring inclusive quality schooling for everyone is a basic human right.

What is the reality?

As most of us have the privilege of easy access to education and often don’t even appreciate it there are parts of the world where children don’t have the opportunity to get it so easily. Not to mention that the quality is completely different and the learning conditions make it even harder even if children have the desire to learn and improve.

Poor quality of education, lack of teachers, lack of interest and stimulation, poor school conditions, financial inability to support kids in school – there are numerous factors which affect the inclusiveness of education around the world.

The good thing is the problem is recognized by many and measures are being taken to improve the overall situation. Here are a few examples.

What is being done?

Humana People to People India

India is one of the countries affected by many of the drawbacks listed above. Thankfully the India Government is taking measures by implementing different regulations and putting effort into increasing the overall quality of education.

Humana People to People India as an organization is also doing their best to remove negative factors and boost interest and quality of teaching. Their projects include providing knowledge, skills, and techniques for teachers which allow them to reach their full potential and keep them interested in the job in the long term.

Projects about promoting the importance of schooling, encouraging children to stay in school, and ensuring a safe, comfortable, and engaging environment are also part of HPPI’s agenda. Here are some of their projects dedicated to education:
