The United Nations Declaration of Human Rights states that education is a basic right. It should be free to everyone at least at primary school. This means that everyone should be able to learn to read and write.

But education is not just literacy. It provides people with the knowledge needed to give them more choice in the type of work they do.

It also gives people the skills they need to take part fully in the wider community. When countries help their people become educated and skilled everyone benefits.
