(Photograph) - Education for all: A teacher teaches Hindi words to children in a make-shift school run by a volunteer group in a New Delhi slum. The majority of children still do not have proper access to education (see story, right).

Meanwhile, education ministers and delegates from 180 countries met in Geneva this week in the latest bid to fight illiteracy at a conference organised by UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation.

Around 100 million children worldwide get no schooling; 14 per cent of the world's population are illiterate and the number has barely declined in the last decade. Women and children fare the worst. Photograph by KAMAL KISHOREREUTERS
