Sustainable Development Goal 4 and impact for Seva-in-Action

12 Nov 2021 5:28 PM | Seva-in-Action

Sustainable Development Goal 4:

Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all 

Education is central to the realization of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Within the comprehensive 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, education is essentially articulated as a stand-alone goal (SDG4) UNESCO.

SDG4 emphasizes on the following:

  1. Education is a fundamental human right and an enabling right. To fulfil this right, countries must ensure universal access to inclusive and equitable quality education and learning, leaving no one behind.
  2.  Education is a public good. The state is the main duty-bearer in protecting, respecting, and fulfilling the right to education. As a shared societal endeavour, education implies an inclusive process of public policy formulation and implementation . Civil society, teachers and educators, the private sector, communities, families, youth and children all have important roles in realizing the right to quality education.
  3. Gender equality is inextricably linked to the right to education for all. Achieving gender equality requires a rights-based approach that ensures that girls and boys, women and men not only gain access to and complete education cycles, but are empowered equally in and through education. 
Education of children with disabilities is as important as it is for all children. It is foundational for employment and other social activities. Education is a fundamental human right and is essential for sustainable development. Education for All and Sustainable Human Development cannot take place with a substantial number of people with disabilities being out of the radar of systemic planning and development processes. In this context Seva-in- Action is working in the space of inclusive education and inclusive principle to ensure equitable opportunities in education , skill development and livelihood opportunities for persons with disabilities. It has been collaborating with the government system and NGOs to achieve the Sustainable development goals and specifically SDG4 (Education) to achieve 2030 Agenda of MDG for India.
