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!
GOAL 4: QUALITY EDUCATION
“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.
