Lifelong Learning programme addresses data gaps to identify invisible or excluded children that may not walk into a classroom. Subsequently, this programme promotes universal access to a quality education, bilingual materials for children from indigenous or Maroon communities, inclusion of children with special needs and capacity strengthening for teachers and other professionals on education. It also brings social cohesion and equity, as well as helps on the reduction of dropouts, leaving no-one behind.
Working closely with parents, teachers and adolescents, UNICEF promotes healthy life choices and quality education by measuring learning outcomes and reducing equity gaps. UNICEF uses innovative solutions to eliminate violent discipline and convert it to positive discipline and bully-free learning environments.
Besides, integrating climate change into education is becoming an emerging priority. This approach strengthens resilience and knowledge of children and adolescents regarding climate change and risks, as well as it increases their ability to demand a youth-friendly greening development.
