Following the MDG meeting of the year 2000, there has been phenomenal progress in achieving the target of universal primary education. The total enrollment rate in developing countries reached 91% in 2015, and the global number of children out of school has dropped by about 50%. There has also been a dramatic increase in literacy rates, and many more girls are in school than ever before. These are all remarkable successes.
However, this progress has continued to face immense challenges in developing regions due to high levels of poverty, armed conflicts and other emergencies. It is for this reason that PACEMaker International is committed in improving the quality of education in under-served schools by leveraging the power of volunteering.
