In the year 2021 according to UNICEF, over 258 million children worldwide under the age of 17 are not going to school.

Education is a human right, enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights at the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. The EFA Global Monitoring Report outlines that education not only helps individuals escape poverty by developing the skills they need to improve their livelihoods, but it also generates productivity gains that fuel economic growth. Yet, many children across the globe have to work to ensure their family’s survival and lack of access to free or suitable education.

MAP’s education programs are designed to build a pathway out of poverty. Our programs provide children with the tools they need to improve critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and foster physical and emotional well-being. We build schools, learning centers, and libraries, as well as establish and operate vocational programs that provide free classes to thousands of children globally.
