Equity in Education
“Education is the key to developing an equal world on many levels, to even power structures between countries and social classes, through empowering the potential in all children who will be our future”, says Melton Fellow Isabel Jaki. In her studies, she learned about the impact that education can have, especially for people from marginalized backgrounds.
Recently she learned about an initiative in her town that matches children from low-income families with volunteers. As part of her Act of Global Citizenship she signed up for being a tutor to a child and offering support with homework, studying for tests and getting to know future possibilities. This act is not going to be a "one-time get-together", but a longer time commitment. From now on, Isabel will meet with the child for one hour every week in the next months.
