Achieving inclusive and quality education for all reaffirms the belief that education is one of the most powerful and proven vehicles for sustainable development. This goal ensures that all girls and boys in Africa complete free primary and secondary schooling by 2030. Accomplishing this will require increasing and concerted efforts to ensure access to education for vulnerable populations, including persons with disabilities, indigenous people, refugee children and poor children in rural areas. At Wesustain, we also believe that as society becomes increasingly knowledge-based and skills- driven, education must be transformed to meet the arising needs. Blending the SDG 4 targets with our unique and transformational models, we endeavor to improve access to and the quality of education in Africa.
