On 12 September 2019, the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) released new education data for the reference year 2018 on the UIS website as well as the UIS online database and various digital products. The UIS is the official source of data used to monitor progress towards Sustainable Development Goal on education (SDG 4) and the Education 2030 Agenda. The UIS leading role in the monitoring of the SDG 4- Education 2030 Agenda is articulated around five main lines of action: support to Member States, development and implementation of standards, development of indicators, data collection, dissemination and analysis.

Naari Foundation believes that whether you are addressing healthcare, poverty, population control, unemployment or human rights, there’s no better place to start than in the corridors of education.

Education is both the means as well as the end to a better life; means, because it empowers an individual to earn his/her livelihood and the end because it increases one’s awareness on a range of issues – from healthcare to appropriate social behaviour to understanding one’s rights, and in the process evolve as a better citizen.

Naari Foundation works for education for underprivileged children who are under difficult circumstances, such as child labour, children of poorest of the parents, children inflicted and affected with HIV/AIDS, street and runaway children, children with rare disabilities, disaster struck children and slum children. Special emphasis is given on girl education and women education, so that they and their families get empowered.
