In Africa, it is truly disturbing that of its nearly 128 million school-aged children, 17 million will never step foot in school. To make matters worse, another 37 million African children will learn so little while in school that they will not be any better off than those kids who never attend school.
At Maarifasasa, we believe this challenges present very exciting opportunities for action. That's what keeps us up at night and awake in the morning!
