School without Water, Electricity or Toilets

Sound appealing? Probably not! Unfortunately, this is the sad reality for many children in Sub-Saharan Africa.

FFunction, a Montreal-based data visualization studio, and UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) recently launched 2 interactive data visualizations. Both are creative and innovative ways to present information.

  • Out of School Children – Explore how gender, income, and location affect a child’s education
  • Left Behind – View how and why African girls struggle to obtain an education
