Education is a fundamental human right for all children and youth. A quality education provides children and young people with the skills and confidence they need to allow them to live lives that they have reason to value. Education creates the voice through which other rights can be claimed and protected.

Every child should learn from a quality basic education.

Millions of children are being robbed of an education simply because of who they are or where they live. Deprived of learning because they are caught up in emergencies, face extreme poverty, or are discriminated against because of their gender, disability, or ethnicity. The world's most vulnerable and excluded children are missing out on education.

- Today, nearly 400 million children of primary school age cannot read or write.
- More than half of all children three- to six-year-olds have no access to pre- primary education.
- About 10 million refugee children risk having their learning interrupted after being forced to flee their homes.
- 25 million children will never enrol in school – and two-thirds of them are girls.

Without a quality basic education, children are less likely to escape the cycle of poverty and may never have the opportunity to fulfill their potential.

2. Education in emergencies.

- Education is disrupted during conflict and disaster denying millions of girls and boys of this fundamental right.

3. Bridging the digital gender divide.

- Bridging the digital divide, or technology gap, means closing the distance between groups with access to technology and those without.

4. Girls' education.
