It is a common known fact that education plays a major role in the success of an individual. However in many countries the gap between male and female literacy levels exists because women have been discouraged from receiving the same educational benefits as men. Women also have less of an opportunity to pursue an education due to financial constraints, and often the males of the family are educated and the females are not.
Every parent strives to provide the best that they can for their children. Every parent dreams to see their children succeed and to be in a better position than themselves. Education is an immeasurable means to building a solid and successful future. Sadly, for most parents in third world countries, they have no choice but to put their hopes for their children aside because they simply do not have the means to provide an education for them. As they must do whatever they can to be able to obtain basic necessities, providing their children with an education is a distant hope. As they grow, their children fall into the same cycle of life.
Some children are able to beat the odds and are fortunate enough to receive an education ~ a gift that they do not take for granted. These students who have received support through ZCSS in India have used their education to establish a better life and future for not only themselves but for their families as well.

The World Federation of KSMIC’s education objective is to empower communities with the ability to become self-sufficient. The most efficient method of reducing illiteracy is through education. This sponsorship scheme supports young students in less advantaged Shia populated areas of the world in order for them to complete their education, ranging from Primary through to higher education.
Sponsoring a child through The World Federation’s Zainabiyya Child Sponsorship Scheme (ZCSS) undoubtedly begins a domino effect that carries over ten fold. When you help to educate a child, you are helping to educate a nation. Let’s give access to education to everyone, because everyone deserves a chance to learn.
