24 jan IGTC

As the pandemic hits the globe, the norm education is shifting towards online classes. However, excluding the online education, there is still 258 million children and youth not attending school and 617 million children and youth not being able to read nor do basic maths (UNESCO, 2021).

Proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly, 24th January is now the International Day of Education. For the year 2021, and the third International Day of Education, the theme celebrated by UNESCO is “Recover and Revitalize Education for the COVID-19 Generation”.

Here at IGTC, we celebrate education as an essential factor in life and invite you to join us through our webinars, trainings and other capacity building programmes. Contact us for more details on education!
