Education exclusion is high in sub-Saharan Africa with over 20 percent of children aged 6 to 11 not attending school. The rate of this exclusion goes higher as they get older. Between the ages of 12 and 14, an estimated 34% are no longer in school while 60% of children between 15 and 17 are on the same boat. While local and national governments are doing their best to remedy the situation, it is likely going to get worse before it gets better per a 2019 report.
Educating Children in Africa has been one of the most important charitable services of a number of non-government organizations around the world. This is especially important in areas where schools are non-existent, far from town, or are struggling to keep themselves open. The educational system in the continent has always faced challenges that is why private organizations support certain towns in building and supporting primary and secondary schools.
