People usually think of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that focus on primary and secondary schools when they think of NGOs that focus on education. But there are many NGOs that operate entirely on improving access to higher education in developing nations.Developing countries are faced with incredible challenges when it comes to educating their people. Most children in these countries are unable to complete primary school and drop out due to the cost of attending school. Many prefer to work for their family than to attend school. As a result few make it out of secondary school and very few go on to achieve a higher education.
