Asia

Asia, the largest region in the Commonwealth in terms of population, is blessed with a vast student populace. Despite this, there are no major student organizations in place. There is a dire need to strengthen advocacy in our region so that the voice of the students is heard and their issues are brought to light.

In many parts of Asia, there is a lot of disparity in the education systems. Adopting a standard education system eradicating the factor of inequality and providing quality education is critical for youth development. Another burning issue observed in Asia is the gender inequality. Asia is a region dominated by many patriarchal institutions.

It is essential to understand that women should contribute equally to men, since they are affected as much as men are by any law. Hence, it is very important to establish an organization that advocates all the problems faced by the students and lends them a platform to voice their opinion.
