UNICEF states all children should receive primary education that is not only free and mandatory but of good quality. This supports the United Nations’ 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights affirming education as a basic human right. After all, increasing access to education has been proven to reduce poverty and disease.
Although the world has made remarkable progress towards this goal, there are still countries where it has not been reached. This means that families in these countries pay for baseline tuition in addition to out of pocket fees for transportation, school supplies, and even classroom supplies, with textbooks making up around half of the poorest families’ educational expenses. And unfortunately, educational expenses are only expected to rise.
ONETrack International not only supports the household and healthcare essentials, but also the educational costs of the children in our Transition to Home programs. This includes those supplemental costs such as textbook and transportation fees. By aligning ourselves with the United Nations’ goals of reducing poverty and achieving universal education, we hope to find sustainable ways to improve the lives of our children and the future of their communities.
