90 million children around the world & approximately 1 million in Jharkhand villages are not enrolled in school; Concern Worldwide focuses on providing basic education to those who need it most. Access to education is not only a basic human right, but also a key factor in reducing poverty and child labour.
Our main aim is to ensure access to quality education for the poorest and most marginalised people. But access is not enough. Once in school, children need to be assured of a safe environment enabling them to realise their potential. As a minimum standard, we believe that education must result in sufficient levels of literacy and numeracy. This enables people to lift themselves out of poverty and continue to improve their lives.
Education helps with mobility—it puts more time into productive activities rather than waiting until someone else gets ahead or fails to reach its goals. It provides pathways by which individuals develop skills needed to meet new demands over many years: learning what tools work well together when you can use others’ knowledge efficiently (such as data management), becoming competent at different tasks so they become skilled again after several attempts – this reinforces skill sets already developed through experience during schooling and gives greater power to individual decision-makers from early childhood onwards.
We have been working closely since 2015 in Jharkhand providing education to build upon these principles.” The “Athlete”, Who Lived
