Feeding the belly and covering the body are great, but they are ends on their own. Education on the other hand, for the developing world; whether formal or informal, basic or advanced is a means to an end and must be highly invested in if a nation will through its citizens compete globally on all fronts. To be educated is to set the mind in motion, which is freedom
