Lack of education

Lacks of education facts

Kids in Africa that are in poverty so they don't have any money to go to school. 33 million primary school age children in Sub-Sahara Africa do not go to school. Only about 56% of African children attend school. There is about 40% of Africans over the age of 15, and 50% of women above the age of 25 are illiterate. The lack of clean water in Africa affects the kids who drink it because it affects his/her academic performance.
