The UNICEF Strategic Plan, ‘Every Child Learns’, aims to ensure that all children, particularly the most vulnerable, are offered inclusive and equitable quality education and learning opportunities from early childhood to adolescence.
To contribute to these outcomes, UNICEF has pledged to i) increase and sustain gender-equitable access to quality education from early childhood to adolescence, including minorities and children with disabilities, ii) increase gender-equitable learning outcomes for girls and boys and iii) increase access to skills for learning, personal empowerment, active citizenship and employability.
