”Without the opportunity to learn, children can’t develop to their full potential- They are more likely to be trapped in cycles of poverty, poor health and forced labour”

”Adolescents need lifelong learning to build better futures for themselves, their families and their communities”

”Without quality education, children face considerable barriers to employment later in life. They are more likely to suffer adverse health outcomes and less likely to participate in decisions that affect them- threatening their ability to shape a better future for themselves and their societies”
