Chennai, 18 February 2021. – Aide et Action, an international association for development through education, paints a pessimistic picture of the development of the rights of girls and women. Thus, at the same time of school desertion, they are more and more forced to stay at home. This is especially the case in the least developed countries. If action is not taken now, the “Next World”, which is slow to come due to the alarming development of the pandemic, risks starting with an intolerable decline in their rights.
On the occasion of International Day of Education (24 January), and as the sector experiences an unprecedented crisis, Aide et Action is launching an information and awareness campaign based on emojis. A universal “language” to remind the world that even today 258 million children are still deprived of education. To save the future of entire generations, urgent action is needed!
Faced with the risk of dropping out of school, Aide et Action and its partner Plan International Benin are proposing the implementation of innovative and adapted monitoring tools to practice an inclusive educational strategy.
