One More Chance offers a better future for children
One More Chance improves education in Sud Soudan, RDC Congo, Malawi, Zambia, Swazilland, Somalie, Burkinafasso, Burundi et Zimbabwe. Each year, it enables more than 564,900 underprivileged children, who have never been to school or left school too early, to attend school and receive a quality education. Thanks to the education offered to them, these children are better protected against abuse, such as forced labor or early marriage, and have real prospects for the future.
One More Chance Education
Our goal is to improve the quality of life for those in need by providing financial assistance and supporting educational programs. Developing countries not only need
infrastructure, new facilities and equipment, but also people who can offer support by living in their communities and providing the necessary assistance. We provide emergency assistance to refugees and victims of natural and economic disasters. We also sponsor education programs and assist volunteers who educate local communities.
A better quality of life for vulnerable populations The more educated people are, the better they will understand the world around them, and will be able to better improve their own lives and the lives of others. This progress is particularly notable in vulnerable populations where education is the best solution for creating better opportunities and success, both when it comes to individuals and the community as a whole. A better quality of life is accomplished by:
Lack of education is the main reason why many families, and even entire communities, have lived in poverty for generations. Without knowledge, they lack the basic tools to change their lives for the better. Education helps young people understand their position and recognize the opportunities available to them.
The acquisition of new knowledge and skills opens the door to better paying jobs, which in turn has a direct impact on the progress of the whole community. While the education of young people from poor backgrounds is crucial to their advancement and success, more funds are being invested in schooling and guidance so that everyone has an equal opportunity to become influential members of
This improves the social status of a large number of people who then have the opportunity to find more creative and better paying jobs, which directly reflects on the success of the whole society, the country, and even the whole world, which faces similar challenges.
The majority of offenders who end up in prison are young people from poor backgrounds. One of the reasons is the lack of perspective that pushes them into a life of crime. Education gives everyone a chance to acquire new knowledge and soft skills that will help them improve their lives. Education also helps children appreciate themselves, their ambitions and knowledge of one from an early age, and understand that they have been given a unique opportunity life. It is a powerful weapon in the fight against crime and poverty, two challenges that all countries of the world face.
Improve social life
A better understanding of the industrialized world and a higher standard of living opens new opportunities for people to satisfy their cultural needs. Going to the theater, exhibitions or concerts enriches one’s social life and brings joy. Indeed, life is more than mere survival, and education allows for a higher standard of living, better understanding between people and personal growth through education, work and extracurricular activities.
A large number of educated people improves the life of a community
Education is an integral part of providing better job opportunities in the fields that are always looking for experts. We are talking about well paid professions such as programmers or surgeons. These professions are even capable of steering the development of an entire community. However, to reach this level, there needs to be an ongoing investment in the education of children and adults who want to retrain or upgrade their skills. While a quality higher education is synonymous with career success, education is equally important in all stages of a person’s development. The foundation for developing one’s future talent and skills is laid in elementary school, and each subsequent step brings students closer to the ultimate goal – a career in a field that fulfills them and allows them to reach their full potential. It is how the educational system and the efforts of the entire community help raise and educate young people who believe in themselves. If they make an effort and acquire the right knowledge, they will be able to choose a career and a job, which in turn opens up a whole range of possibilities to achieve their goals such as buying a house, financial security, a stable family life, etc. Education is an investment in a better life for all members of society.
Developing talents that change the face of humanity
When people are accomplished and successful, they have the ability to give back to their community. Perhaps the most famous examples of such individuals are billionaires Bill Gates and Warren Buffet who not only donated billions of dollars to charity, but also invested in the development of technologies and methods that could help millions of people in the future (vaccines, environmental problems, food, etc.). When a company systematically invests in education, there is a possibility of creating a new Nikola Tesla, who otherwise would not have the chance to develop his talent. It is a kind of investment in the future and the potential of all members of society, because each of them can contribute to its development.
Education is an integral part of modern society
The development and progress of humanity can be directly attributed to the educated people who have advanced human society. Investing in education raises awareness of the major challenges facing society, such as global warming and environmental protection. These things directly affect the quality of life, and they could not be solved without ambitious, creative and intelligent people who are ready to change the world with their knowledge. This is why taking education seriously is not only an important decision for an individual, but also a socially responsible behavior. Every individual has the power to change the world, the only dilemma is – how. There is no one right answer to this question, but with the right approach, quality education, hard work, innovation and creativity, we can be sure that the company will remain in good hands.
