According to research conducted by the United Nations Sustainable Goals initiative, obtaining a quality education is the foundation to creating sustainable development. In addition to improving quality of life, access to inclusive education can help equip locals with the tools required to develop innovative solutions to the world’s greatest problems.
As quoted from its website, “Over 265 million children are currently out of school and 22% of them are of primary school age. Additionally, even the children who are attending schools are lacking basic skills in reading and math. The reasons for lack of quality education are due to lack of adequately trained teachers, poor conditions of schools and equity issues related to opportunities provided to rural children. For quality education to be provided to the children of impoverished families, investment is needed in educational scholarships, teacher training workshops, school building and improvement of water and electricity access to schools.”
At the OSA Foundation, we are committed to gathering resources and raising funds towards the objective of providing basic literacy skills training workshops and enrichment programmes for those who lack access to education in areas identified by the foundation to establish its academy as a non-profit organisation.
