Marginalised communities of Southern Africa still do not have access to formal education, says UNESCO

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) says that some marginalised communities, including the San people of Southern Africa, still do not have access to formal education.

The agency argues this lack of education makes it difficult for them to contribute to the economic development of their communities, countries and the region.

It also states that most of the world’s 370 million marginalised indigenous people - representing approximately five percent of global population – do not have access to education.
