One New Education and its parent organization, One World Foundation formed in 2011 to provide educational opportunities for young women in need in developing and underdeveloped countries. Political unrest, economic instability, environmental degradation and any number of other stressors mean that many families live with next to nothing and often don’t have the money to pay for the required necessities for school. Their children attend when they can, which is sporadically at best. While public school in some of these countries is free, one must still have a uniform and shoes to be able to go, along with the necessary supplies. Even the few dollars that it takes to buy these supplies is often too much for many of these families.
The women in these countries often have children when they are as young as 14 or 15 and, by they time they are 20, they have several children and no way to support them, much less provide for an education. One New Education believes that one of the critical ingredients to end this cycle is education.
Much research has been done on the importance of educating women in these countries. More educated women translates into lower population growth and infant and child mortality, and an improvement in family health. When more girls are enrolled in secondary school, there are more women participating in the labor force and they are able to contribute more to household and national income. Educated women are more politically active and better informed about their legal rights and how to exercise them. The importance of educating women in ending the cycle of poverty in these countries cannot be overstated.
