Education provides children with opportunities to escape poverty, gain a voice in their community and experience a better quality of life. But worldwide, more than 120 million children are unable to attend school.
The Ngäbe lack strong connections to the government and often don’t have the ability to express their needs because of cultural and language barriers. Many families can’t afford healthcare, education, a home, or basic sanitation.
The majority of students in the comarca are forced to travel to another state for middle and high-school level education. As they progress in school, they are faced with the rising costs of travel and boarding, while simultaneously navigating a second language and culture. Despite the doubling of food prices in the last two years and falling levels of food production, families in these communities are making huge sacrifices to send their children to high school and give them the chance at a better life. Few for Change aims to lessen this burden for families and improve opportunities for students who cannot afford education.
