One of the most holistic deed is to educate underprivileged children and here you have an opportunity to change the life of someone. According to UNICEF, studies have estimated one year of education brings a 10 per cent increase in an individual’s earnings while each additional year of education is associated with an 18 per cent higher gross domestic product (GDP) per capita. If all students in low income countries left school with basic reading skills 171 million people will be lifted out of poverty, equivalent to a 12% cut in poverty.
Take the golden opportunity to make that difference. Its time we all do our part in making a happy and educated world around us.
Every summer BYAC organizes a summer camp for youth in Bukavu. Kids and young adults who have never had the chance to attend summer camp enjoy the opportunity to learn new skills in leadership, performing and visual arts, English and basic computer use, and much more! Our summer camps have been incredibly successful in the past and this summer we hope to take it to the next level- join us in supporting youth development in Bukavu.
