A PATH FORWARD
If knowledge is power, then education is the conduit to great things.
While the countries of Southeast Asia have made great strides in school enrollment and retention rates, the Covid-19 pandemic threatens to undo progress and disparities in school access and quality are still holding back students in Cambodia, Lao PDR and Vietnam. The hardest hit are those already marginalised — whether by poverty or geography, ethnic or gender bias or inadequate resources — and the challenges facing these youths are hurting their ability to learn.
Action Education (formerly Aide et Action) and Southeast Asia Globe have partnered to highlight barriers to education across the region and reflect how equal access can heal, empower, and include, building a more sustainable and just future for all.
Will COVID-19 shine a light on the importance of early childhood care and education in Southeast Asia?
