Goal 04:

Quality Education

Education liberates the intellect, unlocks the imagination and is fundamental for self-respect. Whilst some of us take our education for granted, others struggle to even get a school building. Goal 4 is all about ensuring everyone gets a great education that provides the foundations to thrive in life. By opening a world of opportunities, where all can enjoy a quality education, we can build progressive, healthy societies.
