Goal 4: Quality Education

Goal 4: Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning.

Of the 17 Goals supported by the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, quality education and lifelong learning identifies one of Isa Mundo Foundation's primary objectives - to provide basic primary education for all.

Isa Mundo strongly promotes the UN's commitment to this Goal to progress our own projects and draw attention and support to this very important initiative.

According to the UN: enrollment in primary education in developing countries has reached 91% but 57 million children remain out of school. In addition, an estimated 50 per cent of out-of-school children of primary school age live in conflict-affected areas.  

The Goal's report outlines that "education is the key that will allow many other Sustainable Development Goals to be achieved. When people are able to get quality education, they can break from the cycle of poverty."
