Education is a fundamental human right. Unfortunately, there are inequalities, and not everyone has the resources or access to close the gaps. One factor that contributes to inequality is a lack of education. Improving techniques and strategies within the educational realm whether low teacher-student ratio, early exposure, varied experiences, project-based learning, nurturing curiosity, reinstituting the joy of learning, motivation and more are needed across the spectrum. “Every young person deserves a world class education. We have an obligation to provide it to them regardless of their zip code.” (President Obama)
At some point, you realize that as a moral obligation, we must not only help ourselves but others as well. Many are in situations that are not self-induced but the result of invalid systems or broken systems that were put in place. “There is an issue with education, and we can’t overlook it, and we can’t turn a blind eye to it.” (Pharrell, InStyle, 11-24-14)
From One Hand To AnOTHER is committed to reaching back and helping others. In doing so, the desire is to create a future generation of individuals who, as FOHTA, instills the love of education, and knows that education leads to a path of freedom. This freedom allows them an opportunity to be whatever they would like to be and do whatever they desire. If they can believe it, they can conceive and just as there is no ceiling to the sky and stars, there are is no limit to the mind.
“When you look up at the stars, and see how expansive the universe is, you should know that you can do anything. There’s no ceiling when you look up so there should be no ceiling when you think” – Pharrell.
