Basic education and education systems – a cornerstone of development
Vign_shkolnaya-odezhda-dla-devochek-02

A quality education is key to an independent existence and freedom of action. It reinforces a person's ability to make informed choices, adapt to an ever-changing environment and lead a life of their own choosing. It is a prerequisite for active citizenship and an effective lever for exercising other fundamental human rights (freedom of expression, healthcare, food). Education is also a lifelong learning process. Education systems must address the fundamental learning needs of children, young people and adults. An education system must therefore be acceptable, accessible, adaptable and adequately funded.
