Impact-Graphs

The positive outcomes of receiving a quality education are not limited to a student who has an opportunity to attend school. Education unquestionably has an impact on an individual level, but it also has the power to change a family, a community and even a nation. When we talk about lives impacted, we’re not just referring to PoP students; we incorporate the entire community’s population. Education boosts prosperity, leads to healthier societies, helps prevent disease and reduces chronic poverty. Because of these undeniable facts, this data demonstrates that the effects of a quality education reach far beyond the classroom.
