Children around the world suffer due to the lack of political will and incorrect choices made by adults. Many children do not have access to adequate food, shelter, healthcare or basic education. They face the most difficult economic conditions, and their survival is a daily challenge. Limited access to education is driven by economic, social and cultural factors.
This is an unfortunate reality in Ghana, West Africa where many youth live in abject poverty. As a consequence, parents often make tough decisions, one of which is the decision to remove a child from school. In many cases, children are simply never enrolled in school. Needlessly, youth are committed to a lifetime of suffering, exploitation and poor health. Limited educational opportunities perpetuate an already bleak outlook for youth around the world.
