How Philanthropy Impacts Education

A good education can help individuals develop critical thinking skills and prepare them for the workforce. It can also help them build their empathy and social skills. Institutions such as schools and universities play a vital role in assisting individuals to reach their full potential. Unfortunately, many schools in developing countries are not receiving adequate funding. This lack of resources can affect the quality of education and students’ learning outcomes. In 2030, over 800 million young people will lack the necessary skills to compete for jobs.
