@P:HC We think that Education is the core of our society.
By making learning fun, adaptive, and flexible, we empower students to become lifelong learners. Project: Learn looks to make education accessible and transferable. We want to make the world into a classroom, and connecting learners from across the planet on an equal free platform, so we can accelerate local knowledge, sharing and access.
In order to make our education systems better, we face a lot of issues like children without access to schools, different education starting points for students, language gaps and access to educational resources to ensure success. We need to make our schools the perfect place to address all the barriers to accessing quality education, regardless of where the school is.
Some Ideas We're Thinking About:
Project: Learn = Technology + Focus + Access
Why is this important?
Scroll down to learn the Quick Facts!
- There are over 59 million children of primary school age, who are being denied their right to education.
- Sub-Saharan Africa accounts for more than one-half of all out-of-school children worldwide, 55 percent of whom are girls. Moreover, there has been little progress in keeping children in school.
- Of the 59.3 million out-of-school children of primary age, 20 percent have some schooling but dropped out. A further 38 percent are expected to enter school shortly. Another 41 percent will probably never enter school.
- With the recent regressive trends towards universal enrollment, it is now without a doubt that the world will not meet its most prominent global education.
- Between 2010 and 2013, the number of out-of-school children of primary school-age increased by 4.2 percent to 59.3 million.
- The aid to education has fallen by 10 percent since 2010. If funds become scarcer, access to education will continue to stagnate, and the quality of schools will decline, denying the most vulnerable children in the world’s poorest countries their fundamental human right to quality education: without it, their future opportunities are dramatically limited.
- Thirty-six percent of all out-of-school children live in countries that have been affected by conflict. Girls are one of the most marginalized groups, with more than half being excluded from education. Most are children from the most impoverished families, from rural areas, from ethnic or linguistic minorities.
