The Harsh Truth About Children's Education Worldwide

Education Mission One Case One Child

Today, education is considered an inaccessible right for many children around the world. About 72 million primary school-aged children are currently not enrolled in schools, an alarming statistic.

This goes for children in both developed and underdeveloped societies who are burdened with an uneducated life due to their sex, health, and identity (language, religion, family origin, etc.) Many children living impoverished lives also have to forgo their right to an education in order to work and support their families financially.

Sub-Saharan Africa is one of the most affected areas with more than 32 million uneducated children. Following them is Central and Eastern Asia, and the Pacific, with more than 27 million uneducated children.

These areas must also combat the issue of "educational poverty" which is when a child is in an educational system for less than 4 years, and "extreme educational poverty," when a child is in an education system for less than 2 years.

Sadly, it is the girls of these communities who lack the most educational opportunities. About 54% of uneducated children are girls. In Sub-Saharan Africa, more than 12 million girls may never get an education. In Yemen, 80% of girls will never go to school. Even more shocking, countries like Afghanistan and Somalia take no action against this fact, blatantly ignoring the great schism between boys and girls in schools.

Though many nations have made a great effort to reduce these numbers in the past, we are far from where we need to. This is why at ChefHandler we advocate our mission: to ensure education for kids worldwide. A purchase of one case of disposable dishware, cutlery, etc. is a donation for one child to gain the tools needed for them to succeed in an educational environment. One case, one child, it's as simple as that.
