Tailored for Education increases school enrollment and creates economic opportunity by providing the world’s most vulnerable children with locally made school uniforms.
Education is the key to reducing global poverty and a fundamental right of every child. Yet governments in the most impoverished countries require that students wear costly uniforms to attend school. Beyond removing a significant barrier to education, uniforms legitimize the child, instill a sense of pride and put them on a more even playing field. When a child is in school, exposure to risks such as gang recruitment, kidnapping, child labor and trafficking are reduced. The ripple effect is clear. Receiving a school uniform changes a child’s life forever.
