Education Above All is a global initiative protecting the right of children and youth to quality education.
Education Above All is an organization dedicated to improving education for children worldwide. The organization’s website is designed in an appealing manner that also makes understanding the problems associated with global education as well as what individuals can do to help. As the site notes, 57 million children around the world are currently out of school. The site stresses that it actually costs more NOT to educate a child than to educate a child, as the financial loss associated with not receiving an education affects economic growth on an international scale. Of course, the site also notes that education is important aside from economic reasons — as knowledge drastically helps improve lives on an individual basis. The organization partners with other organizations, such as the UN Refugee Agency, Unicef, the Global Partnership for Education and many more, in order to help attain its goal.
There is a ton of information hosted on Education Above All’s website, which also serves as a regularly updated news source for topics pertaining to the organization’s mission. News and press releases regarding meetings — such as a recent one between Ministers of Education from various countries who gathered in Doha, Qatar to discuss strategies for expanding education — are organized in a clean manner, with pictures that make the site visually appealing and easy to navigate. All previous releases, publications and other important documents are also organized in the EAA Library, which the site encourages to be shared amongst visitors. Some of the most powerful visuals can be found in the “Stories” section of the site, which demonstrates the impact of education on individuals from relatively underserved nations around the globe. The site is worth visiting in order to get a better grasp on what Education Above All does, as well as to get involved in helping its important mission.
