They say that education can bring you to places and will help you achieve your dreams. This is the reason why those who are educated are more likely to succeed than those that are not educated. Although the success of a person is not entirely reliant to education, still, there is a big difference in terms of opportunities and qualifications. Sad but true, most of the companies are looking for those who are educated because they have the skills and the knowledge that are needed for the jobs available.
Unfortunately though, there are a lot of people who do not have access to education; hence, most people who are not education are in poverty. It is either they cannot afford to go to school or simply there is no access to schools in their areas.
Think about this, if you have money, you can go to prestigious schools and even travel far just to get the best education. For those who cannot afford, they would rather settle in the nearby schools. Of course, this does not mean that the schools in the nearby areas are not good enough but perhaps, they lack the educational materials to equip their students.
Let us put it this way, there are a lot of schools in the mountain areas in the Philippines. The students of different ages are put in the same class because there is only one teacher. The teacher would actually walk for many kilometers everyday just as so they can teach the students. Another harsh reality is that they do not even have the basic books and teaching materials.
While there are those who have access to education, the question is, are they getting a quality education? Maybe not! A lot of schools are over-crowded; they have more than 50 students in one class, which is not very conducive to learning at all. Hence, there is a need for more classrooms and teachers to be able to provide the best education for students.
Now, what can you do in order to help these people get the education that they need in order to alleviate their poverty. There are many ways that you can help. You can volunteer to teach or even donate to various organizations that go to remote places, build schools, send students to schools or supply basic educational materials.
With your little help, you can make someone’s dreams come true.
