Education

UNICEF is dedicated to making sure that all children can enjoy their right to quality education, from early learning opportunities that lay the groundwork for success, all the way through secondary school.

Challenge

Every girl and boy, everywhere, is entitled to high quality inclusive education.

Some children are more likely to miss out on education than others.

That deprivation has lifelong consequences that often mean that the next generation will start out at a disadvantage.

The resulting cycles of inequality and deprivation thwart the potential of both individuals and societies.

To dismantle the barriers that stand in the way of getting all children in quality education, UNICEF’s work focuses particularly on the children who are most often excluded.

In Serbia, only 50% of children aged 3 to 5 attend kindergarten.
