Why inclusive and quality education is important for all
Watch as a United Nations video explains how we can continue to take action to make positive change
Quality education is a right. For many around the world, it’s a pathway out of poverty and a stepping stone to building a brighter future. It’s why we like this YouTube video, by the United Nations (UN), explaining why quality education matters and how we can help bring it to more children.
“A quality education promotes equality and more peaceful societies,” notes the UN video. During the past decade, progress has been made in making education more accessible. Sadly, the UN reports, the COVID-19 pandemic has potentially “wiped out 20 years of educational gains.”
Around the world, many students continue to be affected by school closures and learning loss, but there is hope. At Children Believe, we work with our country partners and staff to ensure children have access to their basic needs and that the proper precautions are in place so they can access quality education.
