Overcoming Barriers to Education

Especially in the developing world, many obstacles prevent someone from obtaining a quality education. It could be living in a remote location, from an underprivileged family, or the child has to decide between getting an education and working to care for their family. Technology provides a suitable method to overcome some barriers.

  • Why should another student not pursue higher education because her family cannot afford the living accommodations in the city where she can study?
