On World Children’s Day, we should consider what it means to be a child born with a right to reach their human potential. On 20 November we want to highlight that every child has a right to education, but we are still a long way from realizing this right. There are still far too many children who cannot access education from an early age.
Investment in education supports resilient economies, strong and peaceful communities and is the most profitable investment in a more just and humane world for generations to come.
