HAF believes education is the most effective strategy to tackle poverty. An educated person is self-sufficient and will earn money to support their own families. These parents will understand the importance and value of an education and will therefore be more likely to place importance on their children’s education.
There are many factors that contribute to the low school attendance, these include:
Parents are unable to purchase uniform, stationary and textbooks
Lack of equipment in schools
Uneducated parents did not understand the importance of education
