School books and educational materials for rural schools

School books and educational materials for rural schools

From Alexander Lunin

I and my friend travel a lot, 55 countries. We have an idea to help with educational literature in schools in developing countries. In many countries, schools can not afford it. We want to create a charitable foundation.

Right to education for children.
The rights of all children from early childhood stem from the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The declaration proclaimed in article 1: ‘All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights’. The declaration states that human rights begin at birth and that childhood is a period demanding special care and assistance [art. 25 (2)].

The 1959 Declaration of the Rights of the Child affirmed that: ‘mankind owes to the child the best it has to give’, including education. This was amplified by the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights of 1966 which states that: ‘education shall be directed to the full development of the human personality and the sense of its dignity, and shall strengthen the respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. [art. 13 (1)]

The World Declaration on Education for All (EFA) adopted in 1990 in Jomtien, Thailand, states in article 5 that: ‘Learning begins at birth [...] This calls for early childhood care and initial education.’ A decade later, the Dakar Framework for Action on EFA established six goals, the first of which was: ‘expanding and improving early childhood care and education, especially for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children.’

Protection of children of all ages from exploitation and actions that would jeopardize their health, education and well-being has also been emphasized by the International Labour Organization in Conventions No. 138 on the Minimum Age of Employment (1973) and No. 182 on the Prohibition and Immediate Action for the Elimination of the Worst Forms of Child Labour (1999).

The United Nations contributed to such endeavours by the Declaration of the Rights of the Child unanimously adopted by the General Assembly in 1959.

More Info

We have been traveling for several years, the last year without stopping. 

During our travels, we have seen a lot of good and not so much. Therefore, we decided to create an international charitable foundation that will support those in need, especially children in the developing countries of the world.

First of all, we decided, to the best of our abilities and opportunities, to help children's primary schools in such countries with equipment and educational materials.

We think that this is a good idea and it will help many children to learn, gain knowledge and give good further.

If you have any suggestions how to improve our idea or you, we are ready to offer something. Write to us. 

Thank you for your time.
