WHY EDUCATION CAN CHANGE THE WORLD

Why Education Can Change the World

Education means a choice. It is the difference between being rich and poor; between having many and restricted opportunities, and between independence and dependence on others. Knowledge brings power, power over our own lives and the future we can provide for our families. Without education we would not be able to read our sons and daughters a bedtime story and without education we can’t equip them to live in an ever changing 21st Century world.

In this film, Rosie Martin, Chief Executive of African Initiatives talks about the importance of education to development.
