A LACK OF EDUCATION CONTINUES THE CYCLE OF POVERTY
Illiteracy and non-vocational skills are very high in the developing world, which is why it is very difficult for people to break out of the cycle of poverty. It is a trend that will continue for generations unless people are given the opportunity to progress and to make a positive change for their futures.
At HAA, we believe that education and vocational training is key to eradicating poverty. By training members of a deprived community, and enabling them to develop internally, our educational programs help people become more self-reliant and promote wider community development.
What HAA hopes to achieve from education projects
- To restore and improve educational institutions such as schools and day-care centres, which have been affected by natural disasters or war.
- To eliminate illiteracy by way of special educational courses.
- Reduce unemployment rates by providing specialised adult courses that will enhance employment skills and increase occupational opportunities.
- Providing courses designed specifically for women to assist them in earning their livelihoods and becoming self-sufficient.
- Building and furnishing schools, providing students with school books, bags, accessories and other related needs.
