Multi-country -

Education is a foundation for life and a gateway for personal, social, and economic development. However, according to the UNESCO Institute for Statistics, 2022, more than 250 million children and youth worldwide are not in school, and among those in school, many fail to reach minimum proficiency levels in reading and mathematics due to a poor learning environment.
