Essential Needs: Education

February 8, 2018

I have always felt that education allows us to better understand the world and the people around us. It gives us the opportunity to grow into something better, something greater. It helps shape our perspective and gives us the power to succeed.

Still, I have often taken education for granted. I haven’t always appreciated the fact that I have the opportunity to pursue any line of education that I want. But what if I couldn’t? How would that make me feel and how would it impact my life?

There are so many children in the world that are unable to attend school. This is not because they don’t want to learn, but because they don’t have the opportunity. They may not have access to school supplies, school facilities, or even teachers. Even if those are available, there are many other challenges. For instance, poor sanitation facilities can make it almost impossible for girls to attend school. How can we – you and I – help change this?

One way to help is by supporting You Assist. Our organization, with only a few members, invests time and money to help increase access to essential needs such as education. Please consider donating to one of our education projects.
