Today, around the world, more than 61 million children are out of school. In sub-Saharan Africa, where Morija concentrates its efforts in the field of education, illiteracy rates are close to 50% among people between 15 and 49 years old.
This region of the planet is the most affected by this phenomenon!
Education is a major issue for Morija, which is why the NGO is building school infrastructure in the poorest areas of Burkina Faso and Chad and supporting underprivileged schools.
A child whose mother can read has:
- Twice as likely to go to school
- 50% more chance of living beyond 5 years
- 50% more chance of being vaccinated
The importance of the school canteen
Without the school canteen, children from underprivileged families in Burkina Faso and Chad only eat one meal a day, in the evening when they return to their homes.
Having a school canteen allows students to learn better. In schools that have a canteen, there is a systematic improvement in academic performance, and a higher percentage of advancement to the next grade.
Providing all children with the chance to learn better and encouraging them to come to school in a sustainable way are the greatest challenges encountered in our Education projects.
Improving learning conditions for students, and transmission of knowledge for teachers, helps foster the future empowerment and independence of young adults.
We need you to improve the daily school life of underprivileged children.
