International Day of Education - 24 January.

Every year on January 24th, the International Day of Education celebrates the role of education in global peace and sustainable development.

Education is essential for many reasons. Education provides knowledge. It helps people better themselves and understand the world around them. Additionally, education paves the way for employment. Sadly, however, over 72 million children around the world do not have access to education. Many more millions of children and adolescents don’t have the opportunity to complete their education.

The United States General Assembly adopted January 24th as International Day of Education and proclaimed on December 3, 2018. Nigeria and 58 other Member States co-authored the resolution. The first official International Day of Education was observed on January 24th, 2019.

This year celebrating the fourth International Day of Education under the theme “Changing Course, Transforming Education”.
