Education

EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO EDUCATION

Education as a fundamental human right. It is enshrined in Article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

But- according to UNESCO Institute of Statistics, in 2018, about 258 million children worldwide still did not attend school. The total includes:

  • 59 million children of primary school age,
  • 62 million of lower secondary school age and
  • 138 million of upper secondary age.

So – DATUM builds schools to provide inclusive and quality education for children.
