UNICEF – Schools for Asia Initiative


“Education is a fundamental human right of every child. Investing in basic education greatly contributes to the overall economic, social and human development of communities and societies. The importance of Education for All (EFA) is embodied in Millennium Development Goals 2 and 3, which call for the achievement of full primary enrolment and completion as well as gender parity and equality in education by 2015.

The UNICEF Schools for Asia (SfAsia) initiative builds on the success of Schools for Africa and aims to give children the best start in life.”
