Education is a fundamental human right: Every girl and boy in every country is entitled to it. Quality education is critical to development both of societies and of individuals, and it helps pave the way to a successful and productive future. When all children have access to a quality education rooted in human rights and gender equality, it creates a ripple effect of opportunity that influences generations to come.

Chic African Culture advocates for high-quality, child-friendly basic education for all, with an emphasis on gender equality and eliminating disparities of all kinds.


When children start school late and lack the necessary tools for learning, their educational progress suffers and they are more likely to drop out, contributing to the intergenerational cycle of poverty. It is crucial that children be adequately prepared for primary school, begin school on time and receive a comprehensive, high-quality education.

In addition, societies must address gender discrimination from birth. By the time they enter preschool, most children have adopted socially-accepted gender roles and models of behavior, which have an enormous impact on their education and their lives.

By getting children ready for school, we arm them with the tools necessary to build fulfilling lives, become productive citizens and take their place in the global community.
