Education is a human right and an essential tool for achieving the goals of equality, development and peace. Kitabu-buk project was founded on the principle of quality Education for all. Resources allocated to education, are in many countries insufficient and in some cases have been further diminished, including in the context of adjustment policies and programmes. Such insufficient resource allocations have a long-term adverse effect on human development.
Many organizations rely on donor aid to run their activities. They do not have financial independence and can not stand on their own. They are not self sustaining . To the donor world, organizations must show sustainability before they are in position to receive further financial aid.
