Education is one of the best gifts any parent can give his/her children in this information age.


It is your job as parents, educators and friends to see that our young people should have the responsibility to attain the education that will prepare them for the future. Much of that education takes place in the classroom. We must encourage our youngsters in such pursuits as music education. In addition to learning the valuable lesson that it takes hard work to achieve success, no matter what the arena, creativity can provide students with a strong sense of determination, improved communication skills and a host of other qualities essential for successful living.

Education remains an inaccessible right for millions of children around the world. More than 72 million children of primary education age are not in school, 759 million adults are illiterate and do not have the knowledge necessary to improve both their living conditions and that of their children.

Education is the basic right for all children around the world, yet, in developing world there are almost two billion children, most of which are not receiving a proper education or any education at all.

According to the global fund for children one in five children 120 to 125 million children are not enrolled in school. Of those who receive education mostly in the developing world, one in five will not make it to the fifth grade (Basic Five).

Education not only impacts the life a child, it develops and leads to the progress of the entire nation. If in a large majority of countries children are not educated, the prospects of the future business, political, religious and government leaders are marred for many generations.
