Making education possible

 

We're working to get every child in school in the Pacific

We're working to get every child in school in the Pacific</br></br>
For many families in the Pacific, school is so far away, or so under-resourced, it’s just not an option.

In the Solomon Islands, just 9 per cent of children are enrolled in early childhood education, and only about 50 per cent of children go to primary school. For girls, those numbers are lower still. Many don’t start school until they’re 9 or 10, when they are old enough to walk the long distances to the nearest schools.  

We’re pulling down these barriers, and working with communities to get all boys and girls in school. This means early childhood, basic primary education, and training for teenagers.
