The Education Challenge

Education breaks barriers. It is a right for every person and should be valued as the best investment to ensure sustainable human development. Education is a vehicle for social mobility that allows access to better jobs, higher incomes, welfare of households, and is particularly important in countries with high levels of inequality and poverty.

In other words, education is the driving force behind the political, economic, and social changes that promote prosperity and quality life. Education makes possible a more mature and sustainable society by increasing the number of future responsible voters and decision makers.

Our Goal

Children in poverty suffer from education inequality that continues economic and social inequality. It is a vicious cycle: parents with little or no education lead to children with low levels of education. A lack of quality education results in poverty and indifference.

Our Goal

It is very different to be poor with education than with little or none at all. People with the least economic capacity are condemned to education of low quality even if their intellectual capacity is high. Research indicates that reading, math, and science skills are prone to economic and social well-being rather than the number of years spent in school. The percentage of high school graduates is a good indicator but does not represent the quality of education one receives.

We have begun school construction in Peru.
