Although development is conditioned by access to knowledge, we notice a slowness in the efforts made in the field of education.
To ensure social cohesion, it is important that leaders continue to address the issues of school exclusion and ensure equitable education for all. Today, more and more civil society organizations are stepping up aid programs for children, to reduce the inequalities that prevail in the regions of sub-Saharan Africa. The programs set up by Afreek'Ed, namely the granting of scholarships, the distribution of supplies and upgrading programs through support courses, are also in line with this tradition.
Education, a means of engagement
1- Citizen engagement
Education enables the individual to become independent and to broaden the scope of his freedoms. It prepares each individual to take charge of their future and face the trials of life in order to find a place for themselves in society. Education promotes the personal commitment of citizens, both adults and children, in initiating development.
2- Participation in societal issues
The dissemination of education encourages the participation of individuals in public debate and the taking of initiative to resolve societal issues, which require a basic level of knowledge. For example, the environmental problems that affect the planet require everyone's collaboration on a daily basis. People who have received an education integrate more easily actions in favor of environmental protection. They also participate in raising the awareness of those around them on reducing pollution, thus promoting individual commitment to sustainable development.
In conclusion, education intervenes under different aspects contributing not only to human development but also to the development of nations. This commitment must be maintained over the long term in order to allow the current generation to build and transmit the right values to the next generation.
