|When There Are No Books…
Students attending many schools around the world have been faced with the challenge of learning and taking exams without any science equipment or books. Even in regions with an infrastructure of classrooms and teachers, students have to cope with utterly inadequate resources and training.
GLP targets under-resourced regions. In theory, every school should be provided by its national government with sufficient qualified teachers and suitable resources. In practice, throughout the developing world (and for historically disenfranchised groups in even well off areas), schools are given very limited resources and are highly understaffed.
Many schools, such as in the African and South Asia areas we serve, are forced to source out and pay for their own, often unqualified, teachers. They raise funds through community fundraising and by collecting school fees. If they fall short then they must go without resources completely.
