Is only the Government responsible for such state of affairs?

India is a country of contrast! The country has 53 Billionaires, fourth highest in the world. But the same country also ranks 105 on ‘Education for all’ index. Among the world’s 10 richest persons, four are Indians. India’s economy is galloping with 8 % GDP growth. But also, 17 million children of this country work as labourers!

The desired changes in the society will come only when more and more privileged people with a desire to bring changes start participating proactively in “solution finding” process.

Basic education and gender equality

Education is a fundamental human right: Every child is entitled to it. It is critical to our development as individuals and as societies, and it helps pave the way to a successful and productive future. When we ensure that children have access to a rights-based, quality education that is rooted in gender equality, we create a ripple effect of opportunity that impacts generations to come.

Education enhances lives. It ends generational cycles of poverty and disease and provides a foundation for sustainable development. A quality basic education better equips girls and boys with the knowledge and skills necessary to adopt healthy lifestyles, protect themselves from
HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases, and take an active role in social, economic and political decision-making as they transition to adolescence and adulthood. Educated adults are more likely to have fewer children, to be informed about appropriate child-rearing practices and to ensure that their children start school on time and are ready to learn.
