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.
Quality education for all children in underserved communities and youth-led change in Kenya.
Enable quality education for children in underserved communities through trained volunteers, qualified teachers, engaged parents and inspires youth-led change in Kenya.
Each year, approximately 600,000 bright, young Kenyans graduate from high school. The majority go on a 9-month gap year before joining public universities. PACE targets these youth together with long-holiday university students to unlock their potential. By effectively engaging these young people, we will unleash 216 million hours of learning support for students in underserved schools.
