How 45 searches can fund one hour of schooling ?
On average, one child in primary, middle or high school is enrolled 180 days a year.
With 7 hours of schooling (including lunch) per day, this makes 1260 hours of schooling per year.
The price to sponsor a child to college via SOS Children is 10 euros per month, or 120 euros per year.
If we divide 120 euros by 1260 hours, then we get 10 cents per hour of schooling for a child.

The issue of access to education in the world:
The latest UNESCO report from 2018 shows that one in five children under the age of 18 does not go to school.
The reasons for dropping out of school are numerous and often complicated, but it is possible to point to some major obstacles :
Girls from rural areas are often excluded and this phenomenon is accentuated by early motherhood.
Tuition fees and associated costs (uniforms, supplies) can be barriers to education. Families often confronted with the tough choice between paying for schooling or dropping out of school, the second choice being when they don’t have enough money.
Lack of safety
Children may have to travel great distances to go to school, and sometimes take dangerous paths. Their parents pretty often prefer to keep them safe at home.
Some children work on fields or to have to fetch water to help their parents, reducing their school attendance. Some others are forced to quit school to work in extremely dangerous conditions (in mines or to make bricks, for example).
Disasters and wars
When a natural disaster occurs (as an earthquake), or a conflict breaks out, schooling is pretty often interrupted. Emergency situations are particularly traumatic for children. The future of these school-deprived children is then compromised and the risks to their survival and development increase.
In some countries at war, children can be recruited to fight by becoming child soldiers and are thus, are prevented from going to school.
