Many children in developing
countries are unable to obtain even the most basic education, continuing
the cycle of poverty.
13% of the world’s children have never been to school. 32%
of children living in the least developed countries do not attend
primary school. Only 28% of children living in the poorest countries
attend secondary school. In many regions throughout the world, girls
are more likely to miss out on primary school than boys. This is
what drives Access to Empowerment's work.
