The government should set aside funds to ensure that all children get access to quality education, as highlighted by Agenda 2030 and Sustainable Development Goals 4 and 5, a child education lobby group has said.
In a statement to commemorate the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, the Every Child in School movement celebrated the government’s enactment of the Education Amendment Act which signaled a commitment to avail funds for the education of vulnerable children in the country.
“As we commemorate this year’s 16 days against gender based violence under the theme; ‘Orange the World: Fund Respond, Prevent, Collect!’, we now call upon the government to dedicate practical resources to ensure every child has access to education, by building adequate schools and ensuring schools are adequately resourced to promote quality education according to Agenda 2030 and the sustainable development goals 4 and 5.”
