In the words of Nelson Mandela, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” states clearly that to change world or society, it is essential that education should be given importance. Education is the birth-right of every child and equal opportunities for better education should be given to every child present in the society. Every child should be given the gift of basic education and it is also considered as the bedrock of development. Education helps in changing the personality and the story of a child to live a better life. About 61 million children across the world are not able to attend schools and get basic education and lead a life of poverty.Education opens gate for a number of opportunities and increase the lifetime earning of individual. With the help of education, the poverty cycle can be broken and equal chances to get healthy life are provided. In this line, UNESCO has given that primary education is the right of every child and the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) has been implemented with the same aim to provide basic education to every child. Education provides a gateway to remove poverty from the society and help in improving the condition of people.
