January 24, 2020: International Education Day
The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed January 24th International Education Day to celebrate the role of education in peace and development.
Even today, 258 million children and young people are out of school. 617 million children and young people cannot read or learn basic math. Less than 40% of girls in sub-Saharan Africa complete lower secondary education, and around four million children and youth refugees are out of school. Your right to education is being violated and unacceptable.
