Millions of children in schools in Africa do not have adequate school supplies. They lack the basic school supplies because their families live below the bread line. Their parents do not have adequate resources to take care of them and cover all school related costs etc. This is the stark reality.
Most parents have to decide between putting food on the table and buying school books or school supplies, the more pressing need of food/survival rightly wins over.
The sad consequence of this is that the children go to school with inadequate or no supplies. Some of them are not able to perform simple tasks like read or study from a textbook, take notes with a pencil or write in their notebooks. Even the best teacher will be hindered if the children and the classroom do not have the needed supplies or resources.
The education that children will receive in such an environment will be grossly inadequate and a far cry from being empowering and enabling. Better supplies and a supportive environment will result in a higher quality education.
