NEED FOR THEIR EDUCATION
Reports from the World Bank state that the school system remains one of the least effective in Latin America and the Caribbean.
About 8% of young people age 15 to 24 are illiterate. Census data from 2002 indicates 762,000 young people between 15-29, about 33% of the population, had not completed basic education.
Some 913,000 of 20-29 year-old (~62%) had not finished secondary school. Many drop out of school at age 12 or 13 because they need to earn money for their families.
