Education provides the key to a better future, helping people to increase their skills, fulﬁl their potential and pursue their goals. But millions of children across India are denied even basic education. We aim to provide impoverished communities with access to education or training, which oﬀers them a way out of poverty.
Given the evident beneﬁts of education, why do so many children fail to get one? Cost is one of the more obvious reasons why children do not get access to education, given that some families must meet their essential needs – food and shelter – ﬁrst. Parents may need their children to work to supplement household income, do household chores or care for sick family members.
