MMM supports UNESCO's campaign to ensure #LearningNeverStops
According to UNESCO, over 11 million girls around the world are in danger of not returning to school this year due to the unprecedented disruption caused by COVID-19. This staggering figure not only threatens decades of progress made towards gender equality, but also puts girls at risk.
‘For many girls, school is more than just a key to a better future. It’s a lifeline.’
MMM is supporting UNESCO and members of the Global Education Coalition in their newly launched #LearningNeverStops campaign. It is up to all of us to ensure that every girl no matter where she is, is able to continue learning while schools are closed and to return to the classroom when schools safely reopen. The campaign asks us all to work together to safeguard their right to education and ‘turn this crisis into an opportunity to build back equal.’
MMM wholeheartedly agrees with UNESCO’s assessment: ‘Girls’ education is one of the most powerful investments we can make for our collective future. It strengthens economies, reduces inequality and creates more opportunities for everyone to succeed.’ But we further believe that the role of an educated mother is critical to achieving that goal: educated mothers produce better educated and healthier children.
