UN Sustainable Development Goal 4: Quality Education

Hello fellow fashion lovers! Welcome back to our weekly blog! For those of you who are new, FFC has partnered up with the United Nations to promote their 17 Sustainable Development Goals. This week, we are focusing on UN Sustainable Development Goal 4: Quality Education. Let’s dive in!


“Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning.”

Although primary education enrollment in developing countries is 91%, there are still 51 million children who are not enrolled in school. The United Nation’s goal is to ensure that all children are able to have access to quality education.

By 2030, we aim to ensure that all boys and girls in developing countries have access to primary and secondary education.

Facts and Figures

  • More than half of children not enrolled in school live in sub-Saharan Africa

  • 50% of out-of-school children of primary school age live in conflict-affected areas

  • An estimated 617 million youth lack basic math and literacy skills

Why it matters?

Quality education for all children is important, because education is the key that will allow other Sustainable Development Goals to be achieved. When people are able to access quality education, they are given the ability to break the cycle of poverty.

What we are doing

We believe that education is important when it comes to empowering women which is why FFC has been partnering up with Hoja Nueva which is a non-profit that focuses on providing education and job opportunities to empower Peruvian women of the Yine Tribe. In our most recent event with VannStudio, we were able to showcase their beautiful artisan pieces! All purchases and donations went back to the Peruvian women craftswomen.

With all of our combined efforts, we can make a big difference in the world and empower women through education and opportunities!

What can you do?

Use your voice. Within our own communities, it is important that we use our voices to encourage our governments to place a higher value on education. Together we can lobby our governments to provide primary education for all children and emphasize the importance of education for all.

Although it might seem redundant to hear “use your voice,” that is one of the most important things that most of us can do at home towards promoting education for all children. As we continue to promote education for all, it is important that we start at home within our own communities!
