The tree in this image represents the beginning of a growing environment for a child. At first, this tree is barren, with barely any greenery flowing, however, as the child grows more, the tree will bloom with it. The words surrounding the tree are some of the most important things a child should learn, improvement, discipline, literacy, culture, and information. With learning these core fundamentals, the development of the mind begins to grow, and the child can understand the world around them. Quality education is important for every child, and each one of them should have the opportunity to learn.
