MARK & ANN MARIE POINTER is raising money for Results Uk

My story

We will be going the extra mile to raise funds and awareness of the work of RESULTS UK on Global Education. We will walking and running in solidarity with all children who are denied a quality education simply because they cannot manage the long journey to school.

Why can`t every child go to school?

Every girl and boy has the right to a good education, but millions of children and young people miss out. Education isn`t just about finding a job. When one is educated one is more likely to be aware of his/her rights, and better able to make sure that those rights are respected. Education gives people choices and the confidence to take advantage of those choices.

Education is important not just for the individual, but also for members of the individual?s community. For example, a student can share what they have learned about staying healthy with their family. They can teach their friends about safety issues. Theyll be in a better position to be an active, participating member of their community and may even convince someone of the value of an education for every child. Theyll also be exercising their right to education, which is a right defined in the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Some of the reasons why so many children might not be able to attend school include:

Families may have difficulty affording school fees or the cost of uniforms, or may need and children to work to contribute to the family income.

Families may keep their children at home if they feel the journey to school is too long or that it's dangerous to walk to school alone. They may also be worried about bullying, sexual harassment or violence, especially for girls.

Local traditions:
In some countries, families place more emphasis on the education of boys, and may not believe it is important to send their daughters to school. Girls may also be forced to marry young, drop out of school, and dedicate themselves to housework.

Conflicts, economic crises and natural disasters prevent millions of children around the world from getting an education.
