There are 58 million children out of school. They are everywhere. The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were set out to ensure that, by 2015, children everywhere would be able to complete a full course of basic primary education. Yet, as we approach the 2015 deadline, 58 million children remain out of school. Hundreds of millions more are not learning. At the current rate of progress, it will be 2086 before the last girl is able to go to attend primary school. Ethically, this is not acceptable. Being active citizens, we must accelerate efforts to get every child into school and learning. In order to do so, we must eliminate the largest barriers that keep millions of children out of school. Somewhere in the globe they are poverty stricken, in some other parts of the world they are in conflicts, or as refuge living hard to make a living. They are innocent and alive with a dream to live and become big. We all have dreams. Those 58 million children out-of-school too have a dream but unfortunately the future seems misty because of the barriers to education. Education is our basic human right and everyone has the right to study and be educated. But down the lane the reality is distorting. Many are yet to receive full quality and inclusive education, in order to groom them, fight and fit against the changing world. With a mission to put 58 million children out-of-school into learning, we are the advocates of change who envision for a wonderful future, a sustained future where the world shall be an educated place with peace and harmony. Education unites us all.
