Students Call on Professionals to Ditch Suits and Raise Funds for Education
Each year thousands of children living in the midst of armed conflict or crisis do not have access to a fundamental right: primary education. According to the United Nations Populations Fund, It is more likely for a woman in South Sudan to die during child birth than to finish primary school. Suitless for Students aims to change these statistics by funneling donations directly through the United Nations fund for the expansion of access to primary education in developing nations.
The UN has envisioned universal primary education by 2015, their second Millennium Development Goal, as step towards breaking the cycle of poverty.
