Education changes our lives

Education includes

Aide et Action is convinced that quality education for all requires inclusion. The organization specifically targets its projects to reach the most vulnerable and marginalized populations (the poorest, out-of-school pupils and drop-outs, the ones at risk of dropping out of school, girls, migrants, children with disabilities, children from ethnic minorities groups, and more.) Aide et Action takes action to ensure that no one is forgotten throughout their entire education.

Yet, due to lack of inclusion, inequalities - both in terms of access and quality of education - remain, both between states and within countries. As a consequence: the most marginalized children are left behind.

Because Education:

• Offers a better future and a better life, especially for the most underprivileged, marginalized and excluded populations,
• Transfers essential skills to enable (re-)integration into society,
• Empowers individuals to take action and participate.

Education INCLUDES,
defending it concerns ALL of us.
