Accountability for SDG4 and Citizen Participation
Last week, Aide et Action (AEA) was recognised as one of the active partners in a joint effort to respond to the Global Education Week 2017 (GEW) activities sharing the common goals:
• Develop, fund and implement credible plans for the full set of targets for SDG4;
• Strengthen public systems and state capacities to ensure free, quality, and equitable education; and
• Ensure that there are credible, transparent mechanisms for the participation of civil society in monitoring and accountability for the SDG4 agenda.
To raise awareness of the people, the education system, and governments at all levels about the GEW, AEA held Reading Day events at its three project sites including Doan Ket, Tien Phong A, and Vay Nua primary school, Da Bac district, northern province Hoa Binh. Some 500 students participated in educational activities such as story telling, quizzes, and math games.
Along with teachers, local school leaders and educators, AEA has made efforts in providing the opportunities for project-based ethnic students living in mountainous areas to have access to a free, quality, and equitable education for all.
