In the past decade, millions of children around the world have gained access to educational opportunities. But there is still much work to be done.
The children excluded from learning opportunities are among the most vulnerable and hard to reach in the world. They come from the poorest households and often have to work to help support their families. Some face discrimination as ethnic minorities. Others live with disabilities. Most often they are girls. The Out-of-School Children Initiative is a global effort to uncover data and details about the children left behind and offer policy recommendations and interventions that will allow every last child to go to school and learn.
