International Youth Day 2016

Today marks International Youth Day, a day where we can focus on inspiring and empowering a young generation around the world. There is a greater need more than ever to invest in youth today. This year, International Youth Day is about achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Camara Education is playing its role and working towards Goal #4 – Quality Education. Camara believes the world would be a better place if all young people were empowered through innovative education to create the life they want to lead.

Limited access to educational excellence and innovation narrows the life chances of young people in many countries, most notably in Africa. Camara helps to unlock the potential of young people by working with governments, ministries of education, and other educational experts to help deliver to both schools and teachers in communities around the world. It delivers support, information, and technology to promote change and improvement in education to enable young people to attain better grades.

Education is a basic human right. But resources for schools are sometimes extremely limited. Camara provides schools with computers and the relevant training to help improve the education experience and to help communities access the digital economy. Through education, we believe it is possible to increase living standards. There are many studies and observations demonstrating the link between education and escape from poverty, and there are many ways to address access to and improvement in education.

Camara is dedicated to providing equal learning opportunities to children in disadvantaged communities around the world. We aim to empower and inspire the next generation of youths to fulfil their potential through the use of technology. By providing digital learning platforms for children in these communities we can open up a whole new world of information and help the youth of tomorrow fulfil their potential.

By using technology to simplify learning in the classroom, we can help build confidence and skills in our youth and give them the tools to be leaders and role models in their community. Every child is entitled to an education, we are working to provide a brighter future for those who need it most. By doing so we are giving youth a voice and the proper tools for them to develop and be able to educate those in their community.

The children in these countries are brimming with potential and we need to continue to support and enhance the abilities of our younger generation for future success. Together we can all make a difference in youth and skill development and work towards creating a more sustainable future for all.

Since 2005, Camara has raised and generated €20m, trained 24,000 teachers across 4,000 eLearning Centres, and installed 80,000 computers, enabling 1,800,000 children to improve their educational outcomes, including the attainment of better grades.
