You may have heard of the famous Carpathians Mountains. Yes, the spine chilling mountain where Bram stoker's legendary immortal vampire Dracula sleeps. Carpathians is another name of the Bieszczady Mountains in Poland. Poland is the nation which produced literary gems like Joseph Conrad and Henryk Sienkiewicz and Nobel winner Scientist Marie Curie who invented radium. It is a country in central Europe, which is ranked as the 69th largest country in the world. Poland has a population of over 38 million people.
While once, education was the privilege of the wealthy – historically, the wealthy men to be more accurate – countries across the globe have improved access to basic education over the years. The total number of children who drop out of school has seen a reduction of 47 million since 1999, so things are looking positive; but millions still lack basic education and the advantages that learning brings. At the start of this decade, over 130 million teens and kids worldwide were outside of the education system: a concerning fact, given that individuals who lack education have limited resources and opportunities. The lack of access to basic education means less progress, less financial stability and a less sustainable country.
