According to the UNESCO and UNDP’s global project models, the literacy rate in some third world countries are less than 27%. Education is free, however state-sponsored education is very limited and most secondary or university education can only be afforded by children of the elite. Only about 30% of children begin school and out of that 30%, only 2% stay in school beyond the 5th grade. Teachers are poorly prepared and the materials provided are inadequate. The typical classrooms in some rural areas consist of 70 or more pupils per teacher. This is an indicator that teachers cannot dedicate the necessary amount of time to the needs of each individual student.
“A quality education has the power to transform societies in a single generation, provide children with protection they need from hazards of poverty, labor exploitation and disease, and given them the knowledge, skills, and confidence to reach their full potential.”
