Schools shape children, Children shape the world.
244 million children won't start the new school year ¹
That’s nearly 1 in 30 people worldwide or the same size as the population of the United States.
Education is vital for children in rural areas, as it offers them better opportunities for the future and improved health. However, many children face challenges in accessing education due to the distance they have to walk to get to school. Ensuring access to education in rural areas can break this cycle, leading to better educational outcomes and increased opportunities for both children and their families.
Education changes everything
Why is access to education important for underprivileged children?
Breaks the circle of Poverty
With education, children can acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to secure higher-paying jobs and lift them selves and their families out of poverty
Education empowers children to take control of their lives and make informed decisions about their future. It also helps them to become active participants insociety, contributing to their communities and working towards positive social change(s)
Improves social mobility
Education can improve social mobility, allowing children to move up the socio economic ladder and increasetheiropportunities for a better future
Fosters a more equitable society
Access to education can contribute to a more equitable society. When children from all backgrounds have the opportunity to learnand grow, it helps to breakdown social barriers and promotes greater social cohesion
How do we tackle the education crisis?
Education is the right of every child and is a game-changer. A good education is the foundation for a child's success later in life and a common factor in ending cycles of poverty. - Unicef²
Key metrics about the Academics Kenya program (2018-2022):
The economic growth that Kenya has experienced in recent years has not benefited a large part of the population, and the inequality is immense.
The rural areas are still experiencing serious poverty, and 36% of the population lives in absolute poverty. As a result, many children in rural areas are missing out on quality education and have little hope of getting jobs in the future.
Human Practice Foundation is working with strong local partners. Their local knowledge combined with HPF expertise in the educational sector and implementing projects forge a comprehensive platform for creating impactful and sustainable change in the local areas. ⁴

Watch is fine and is what I expected for the price. Unfortunately the hour needle has scuffed polish or a greasy finger print marring it. Would have been easy to avoid if QC was better. Expected more for a quartz watch at this price.
Beautiful watch. Wish I could have kept it. It was too small. I didn't realize with my need to wear reading glasses, that I also need a larger watch! :)
I was really pleased with the quality of this watch when it arrived. I had held my breath hoping the photos online were true to the actual product quality, turns out they were, and I was pleasantly surprised that the real-life watch was far superior than I had expected. I'm thrilled by the little details such as the small design stamps on the band and back of the watch which denote that this piece and its parts are original August Berg and not outsourced, the solid sapphire glass, and the clever wrist strap removal levers. Its just very, very well done in general.
This watch is so pretty and I love the colors.
It’s one of my special occasion watches and really adds to fall/winter outfits.
I wish the strap was a bit longer - I got the 30mm watch and the strap is quite short for my wrist (which is normal sized!)
I might swap out for a rose gold mesh band if possible.
