Why We Support Education

  • Education is a basic human right for all children, yet currently education is inaccessible to many children worldwide, and education quality is not guaranteed.
  • The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 4 calls for a universal commitment to ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning by 2030.
  • Globally, 263 million young people remain out of school, with the majority living in the world’s most disadvantaged contexts. Schooling is impacted by a wide range of social impacts including poverty, child labour, early marriage and conflict.  
  • Emergencies are exacerbating the global education crisis with 75 million children and young people out of school in crises contexts.
