Education plays a vital role in the economic development of a country as it increases the capacity and ability of people to be more productive economically. Every child – even those living in poverty, in war-torn areas or those living with disabilities – has a right to education.
As stated by Save the Children, a leading humanitarian organisation for children, education is the route out of poverty for many people. It gives them a chance to gain the knowledge and skills needed to improve their lives.
Southeast Asian nations have made numerous efforts and plans in order to improve their education systems and standards. Prayut Chan-o-cha, Thailand’s premier, has promised first-rate education as a way for the kingdom to become a developed country by 2036.
Equitable Education Alliance (EEA) is a community of practice for organizations; ministries, agencies and NGO’s who strives to push for a more inclusive and equitable educational system while enhancing the performance of existing equitable education organizations at all levels
