An education builds self-confidence as well. Those who attend classes have their untapped skills and abilities revealed, allowing them to fully utilize their potential.
Unfortunately, education remains out of reach for many of the impoverished children that Cross International serves. The cost of school fees, textbooks and uniforms is simply too high. Forced to choose between buying food or sending their kids to class, parents are compelled to focus on basic survival. Caught in this impossible circumstance, their children never learn to read or write, and the cycle of poverty continues.
