Evidence shows that providing all children with quality basic education could boost annual economic growth of a country by two percent in low‐income countries.

12 percent of people could be lifted out of poverty if all students in poor countries had basic reading skills (over 170 million people).

Over the past four decades, the global increase in women’s education has prevented more than four million child deaths It further shows that one additional school year can increase a woman’s earnings by 10% to 20% and With every US$1 invested in education and skills equals to US$10 in economic growth.

Yet 61 million children of primary school age are out of school. 42 percent of these children live in conflict‐affected poor countries.

At least 250 million children are not able to read, write or count well even for those who have spent at least four years in school. In at least 63 countries, young women from poor households are significantly less educated than poor young men.

775 million adults are illiterate of which almost 500 million of them are women.
171 million children in developing countries are stunted by malnutrition by the time they reach age five, which means their ability to learn is likely to be affected.
