Access to education

As the first basic premise for a better world for all children and young people, all children must have access to quality education. Access to quality education is crucial for children's well-being, development, and prospects.


100% for the Children aims to enhance educational access and quality while promoting gender equality and reducing barriers such as teen pregnancies, early/forced marriages and high dropout rates.
Marginalization due to socio-economic status, gender, ethnicity, language, religion, disability, and location are driving factors for inequality in education. It is this inequality that 100% for the Children, together with our partners in Kenya, Ghana and Malawi addresses. In our programs we work to reduce inequality in access to education for marginalized children and young people - especially girls and children with disabilities. At the same time, we work to ensure a higher quality of education, which strengthens the children’s abilities, talents, and personal development and prepares them for the future. This includes complementary educational paths like Life Skills and entrepreneurship.

Goals for education

By the end 2027, 100% for the Children will:

  • Reduce dropout rates by min. 85% at the schools we are presently in.
  • Educate min. 2000 families on the necessity of girls’ education.
  • Strengthen local CSOs in education advocacy.
  • Ensure min. 50 schools in Nairobi County and 15 schools in Northern Region Ghana implement safeguarding policies and secure the rights of children with and without disabilities.
  • Secure access to adequate ICT Education in rural high schools (Northern Ghana).
  • Provide quality education access for min. 30.000 children and youth.
