Educating for the future, one child at a time
In the Solomon Islands, Salesian missionaries are working hard to address the causes, and consequences, of poverty.
Inadequate access to education—especially among destitute families living and working in the garbage dumps of Ranadi—means that far too many children grow up without the knowledge and skills they need to build brighter futures. As many as 25 percent of the country’s youth have never attended primary school. Unsurprisingly, adult literacy hovers around a mere 35 percent. The resulting cycle of generational poverty is vicious, and its negative effects on families are profound.
Your generosity extends far beyond the Solomon Islands. Wherever endemic poverty forces girls and boys to work instead of attending school, you help our Salesian missionaries advocate for and make real change … one child at a time.
Thank you in advance for your kindness!
