With the lack of public funds and the prevalent poverty, children in rural villages can barely imagine going to school, let alone attaining a higher education and a secure job. Coming from a background where education is looked upon as a luxury, these kids are compelled to resort to working at a young age to support their families financially. This does little to uplift their living conditions or financial background.
Unlike people in cities who are able to provide the best education to their children along with sports activities and hobby classes, residents of rural areas, are unable to afford the fees, uniforms, books, and transport associated. The additional expenses further deter countless children from pursuing a school education.
In order to bridge the gap and tackle the disparity, Open Hands Education implemented a program that provides free education to the underprivileged and needy.
We truly believe supporting a child’s education is the best way to help break the cycle of disadvantage. By giving disadvantaged children and young people the support and resources they need to achieve their full potential, our impact will have a lasting effect on those we help today, and for generations to come.
