International Day of Education | 8 initiatives for the empowerment of students and educators

Education is a fundamental human right, a public good and a public responsibility. Inclusive and equitable quality education is a prerequisite for achieving gender equality, eliminating vulnerabilities and breaking the cycle of poverty that is leaving millions of children, youth and adults behind. Today, 244 million children and young people are out of school, according to UNESCO.


In celebration of the role of education for peace and development, the United Nations General Assembly has proclaimed the 24th of January as International Day of Education.


Aiming to foster democratic and inclusive schools, where all children and youth will be able to thrive and unleash their potential for a promising future regardless of their socio-economic background, KMOP designs and implements a wide range of social initiatives targeting both students and educators.
