SDG Goal 4: “Ensure Inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.”
The importance of this goal to the realization of all the 17 Goals cannot be gain said. It is for this reason that the Shule Yangu team joined representatives from the Children Sector CSOs in a workshop with Members of the Parliamentary Caucus on Sustainable Development Goals and Business to discuss the legislative agenda in regards to Child-Focused SDGs Targets and Indicators. The meeting discussed the proposed Children’s Bill which has an impact on basic education, right to play and leisure among other provisions relevant to our work. Deliberations at the meeting were very fruitful and resulted in an agreed framework for synergy and collaboration. As the SY team, we are excited to play our part in ensuring that children’s right to education is not hindered by lack of school facilities due to land grabbing.
