Children in poor countries face many barriers to accessing an education. Some are obvious – like not having a school to go to – while others are more subtle, like the teacher at the school not having had the training needed to effectively help children to learn.


• Around the world 59 million children of primary school age are being denied an education, and almost 65 million adolescents are without access to a secondary school.

• Conflict and natural disasters have disrupted the education of 75 million children.

• In one of three countries, less than three quarters of teachers are trained to national standards, resulting in 130 million children enrolled in school who are not even learning the basics.
