Millions of African Children are not going to school due to poverty. Instead of the promise of a better future through education with all its attendant benefits, these children engage in street trading to help them and their families survive. The importance of giving these vulnerable children access to quality education therefore, need not be overemphasized as we believe that the best gift one can give to any child is education.
