Education is a fundamental right and an important tool in the fight against poverty!

Despite commitments taken at worldwide level, more than 100 million children don’t attend school and about 800 million adults, mostly women, are illiterate. Education is also a very powerful tool for solidarity. In Switzerland, we work with schools to develop a greater awareness in young people and children regarding social issues that affect us both at home and as citizens of the world.
