Annual Report Schools for Asia 2018
UNICEF’s work in the field of education is motivated by two incontestable truths. First, it is every child’s fundamental right to attend school and to learn. UNICEF is dedicated to ensuring all children can exercise this right to a quality education and to have the opportunity to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and competencies to survive and thrive. Second, education is one of the best means of bringing about long-term positive change, both socially and economically. UNICEF supports children’s education around
the world because of its potential to reduce poverty and to build healthy, resilient and peaceful societies. This report highlights the organization’s achievements in 2018 in improving children’s education in Asia, from early learning opportunities that lay the foundation for academic success to the completion of secondary school.
