Students for Children strongly believes that education is the key for enabling children to break through the vicious circle of poverty. Children greatly benefit from skills like reading, writing and calculating. Education contributes to a young persons self-esteem and protects them from exploitation and violence also children who attend school are less likely to end up in crime. In the long term children who went to school and gained an education will also be able to attain higher goals and therefore receive higher incomes later in life. These incomes may contribute to a better future for their own children. Together our belief is that we can break through this awful circle of poverty through education!
