Education and Development
Education and development is the necessary factor to transform the present state of the society into a prosperous one. Education is the only tool that is needed for the development of the country. It is the process of teaching and learning knowledge and skills. A person with knowledge knows how to use his information in a good manner and able to create fine patterns through which expanding education become easy for the development of his country.
Development refers to the term that a country is having good infrastructure, biodiversity and climate change.
Education is the basic right of every human being. Illiteracy gives rise to the poverty and declination of the nation. Lower literacy rate is associated with the reasons like cultural conflicts, restrictions on girls and boys upon receiving education and poverty. On the contrary, the lower and sub-standard education systems are giving knowledge to the learner in a limited way and the learner is only able to think and work in a bounded environment.
There are many non-governmental organizations around the world who are working together to expand the awareness through education and development around the globe even in the backward countries so that they can achieve equal level as the developed countries and able to stand with them in global conferences and in other strategies. The NGOs that are associated with education and development programs are as follows;
