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.

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.

Africa is surrounded by water but is not an island, here are a few African Island facts.

Madagascar is the 4th large island in the world and is located in the Indian Ocean supporting a unique biology, about 90% of its plants and animals are found nowhere else on earth.

Composed of 155 islands, Seychelles is Africa's smallest country. By far the largest island is Mahe, home to about 90% of the population and the site of its capital city of Victoria.

Cabo Verde has a strategic location 310 miles or 500 km from the west coast of Africa near major north-south sea routes; important communications station; important sea and air refueling site.

Africa is surrounded by water but by definition Africa is not an island because Africa is a continent. Continents can not be considered islands because of their size and also by historic definition since many people who study geography define islands and continents as two different things.

Being African in America I have grown up learning about different ethnic cultures. My father and mother are historians of African culture and history and their influence expanded my activities to several best-selling cookbooks, magazine columns, self-branded products, and a popular African culture and food blog.
