Education Is the Passport to the Future
Education reflects an investment that will pay dividends for a lifetime. Education gives people access to better and more frequent opportunities, helping to catalyze an improved quality of life. Strong education provides a reliable foundation, not just for individuals, but for the countries in which they live. Join Givv and help us achieve the UN’s goal for quality education through funding for schools, scholarships, teacher training.
What’s the Goal?
To ensure inclusive and quality education for all and to foster and promote lifelong learning.
Why Does it Matter?
Education underlies the successful continuing development of both people and nations, and it is the key to achieving many of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. Education provides the empowerment and essential knowledge resources necessary to build a stronger tomorrow.
Why Is Education Important?
A complete education is more than learning reading, writing, and arithmetic. Men, women, and children also need to understand how to live healthy lives, explore the history of their community, and develop more empathy for other cultures and individuals. A good education can break the poverty cycle, reduce inequality, and foster communication.
Can We Achieve This Goal?
Yes, we can. To achieve the goal of a quality education for all, we have to help fund and encourage our governments to help fund training for teachers, fund school buildings, and to provide scholarships for underprivileged students.
What Can We Do to Help?
Providing education for all is a community effort. We need to encourage politicians and governments to make education a priority and provide free schooling to all. We also must encourage corporations to fund scholarships and invest in educational tools and facilities.
