Today there are approximately 70 million children around the world without access to education. This is a direct consequence of education not being a priority in the budgets of so many developing countries, as it often thought of as too expensive and too long term. With a lasting low level of general knowledge in many developing countries, its resources are never tapped to the benefit of the people.
Schools are vital in protecting children and supporting their emotional and social development by giving them comfort, security and opportunity. The routine of school develops a sense of normality and the environment is one in which children are allowed to be children.
Visma supports PictureAid and our contribution ensures that 35 orphans in Le Sotho are able to go to school every day. We hope to create a movement that can sustain itself by giving an option with the most powerful tool of all; education.
