Sound appealing? Probably not! Unfortunately, this is the sad reality for many children in Sub-Saharan Africa. Even worse, this sad reality is only for those children lucky enough to even attend school. In the world today, there are 58 million out of school children, and 43% of those children will never start attending school.
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
