65 Million secondary school-aged children who are out of school in Subsaharan Africa. Even for those who got a chance to get into school, the education system does not prepare them for the job market. This is very urgent and important since according to UNESCO data out of 89% of students enrolled in primary education only 9% actually make it to tertiary education and only 6% graduate.
