Education is the key but it's expensive. Only the fortuners have the chance to be educated especially in third world countries.

Renown South African President Nelson Mandela believed that education is the most powerful tool that can change the world. Similarly, Mwai Kibaki, a former president of Kenya introduced free primary and secondary education in 2005 to express his support for education and to make it affordable to everyone.
