When it comes to quality education, some children in Africa are definitely at a disadvantage. This is because in many African countries, the annual budget for education falls well below the 26% minimum recommended by the United Nations. In some third world countries, the annual budget for education stands at just 6%-10%. Clearly, these low figures have a negative impact on the African child. This is why wealthy people and Non-Governmental Organizations have an important role to pay in educating children in Africa.

You can use your time and financial resources to help disadvantaged children on the African continent. It is a simple matter of getting in touch with reputable organizations in Africa. Just ask questions in the right quarters and the experts on the ground will tell you exactly how you can help the African child. Education is a social service and this is why it cannot be left to federal and state governments alone. Contribute your own quota and you will be doing the right thing.
