Save Our Future campaign officially launches
MMM is proud to be partnering with the Save Our Future campaign, a global education movement supported by amongst others, UNESCO, UNICEF, the African Development Bank and the World Bank, that aims to ‘protect and reimagine education in a post-COVID world’.
The innovative campaign brings together ‘a global coalition of diverse voices – from CSOs to the private sector, youth to researchers, media to multilaterals, foundations to influencers and more – to amplify the voices of children and young people as they deliver a simple yet loud and powerful message: Save Our Future’.
Recent figures suggest the pandemic has created the largest disruption of education systems in history, affecting nearly 1.6 billion learners in all countries and all continents.
According to the campaign organisers, we are witnessing the greatest education emergency of our lifetime. “The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the education of over 90% of the world’s students. It has exacerbated already existing inequalities and magnified the global learning crisis. The future of an entire generation is at risk. But while education is clearly a victim of the pandemic, it is also the solution to the longer-term recovery.”
MMM is committed to the right to education, especially for women and girls who are particularly at risk of dropping out of school: it is the key to reducing growing inequalities in these pandemic times, and to building a fairer world. Mothers dedicate themselves on a daily basis to ensuring that their children can go to school providing them with the opportunity to lead a dignified life, realise their dreams and reach their full potential. We also know that educated mothers have healthier and more educated children.
For this reason, MMM is proud to be a part of the movement, alongside UNESCO, UNICEF… in wholeheartedly supporting the #SaveOurFuture campaign. Saving the future by making education a priority concerns us all.
