Transforming lives through education
January 21, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Despite the considerable progress on education access and participation over the years, more than 250-million children and youth aged 6 to 17 were out of school in 2019. Cuso International is working in partnership with ministries of education and community partners to improve education outcomes.
In Ethiopia, women make up just 27 per cent of the university population, a quarter of whom will drop out before graduation. In Canada’s Northwest Territories, challenges include less access to resources, fewer teachers, and a lack of courses needed to meet post secondary requirements.
The 2021 International Day of Education webinar will position education as a fundamental right. In the Ethiopian context we will address the existing gender barriers for the advancement of girls’ education. And in Canada’s Far North, we will discuss how working together with teachers builds a supportive environment for students to reach their full potential.
