We supplement the costs/fees for students to attend school.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights makes clear that every child has the right to a free basic education, so that poverty and lack of money should not be a barrier to schooling. In many developing countries, over the last decades governments have announced the abolition of school fees and as a result, seen impressive increases in the number of children going to school. But for many of the poorest families, school still remains too expensive and children are forced to stay at home doing chores or work themselves. Informal fees see parents forced to pay for compulsory items like uniforms, books, pens, extra lessons, exam fees or funds to support the school buildings. Families remain locked in a cycle of poverty that goes on for generations.
