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, 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 bias or inadequate resources, the challenges facing these youths are hurting their ability to learn.
Over the next six months, Aide et Action, in partnership with Southeast Asia Globe, will 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.
