- October 11, 2018
Education is a powerful driver of development and one of the strongest instruments for reducing poverty and improving health, gender equality, peace, and stability. Developing countries have made tremendous progress in getting children into the classroom and the majority of children worldwide are now in primary school.

Some 1,600 students had completed a one-year adult education course, gaining essential skills in linguistics and science. Nine community learning centers with trained staff and library facilities, continue to support community literacy and education programs.
