This Global Goal seeks to ensure exclusive and equitable education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. 

“I love to come to school, I want to be wise” ~ Gladys, Aged 8

All children have the right to receive a quality education.  In Malawi, a lack of infrastructure, teachers, and learning materials, means 34% of children do not finish primary school.

Meet Gladys who lives with her family in Phalombe in southern Malawi.  She is 8 years old and is one of 108 pupils in her class.

A project at Gladys’ school has used technology to improve students’ numeracy and literacy through specially designed apps on a tablet. In addition to this, Gladys has been supported to stay in school and enjoy learning.

With your support, Comic Relief and UK aid have jointly-funded projects that have supported over 410,000 children like Gladys across Africa to access education since 2009.
