Among the international organizations which work for the promotion of education, UNESCO is one of the most famous. Like most of this type of organization, UNESCO works for better education in the world, especially in the neediest countries.
With organizations of this scale, and less known organizations like the Prem Rawat Foundation, education has become more accessible at all time but above all, the peace which is based on education is reinforced every day thanks to the actions of volunteers and men of peace like Prem Rawat.
UNESCO promotes education for all
Education for all is one of UNESCO's main goals. Every day, they work in various countries around the world to make education fair, accessible and equal for anyone, wherever they are. In the world indeed, education is one of the areas where there is the most inequality. Whether between two different countries or within the same country: urban or rural areas. Education is often used as a weapon of war and conflict to separate the population.
Thus, it becomes unequal. And this is what UNESCO mainly fights against. For this, UNESCO intervenes in all areas of education, from the implementation of the school program to students' well-being. In needy regions, for example, UNESCO operates in the field of school canteens and proximity to schools. In more advanced regions, UNESCO is above all a mediator of education for development.
UNESCO protects children around the world
When we talk about education, the main people involved are always children and adolescents. UNESCO has thus set itself the role of protecting children by granting them their fundamental right to education, but above all by protecting them. In countries at war as well, UNESCO particularly protects children who become soldiers as well as those who are orphans.
Therefore UNESCO is also responsible for protecting the rights of children, in close collaboration with UNICEF. It is therefore not uncommon for the two organizations to often work together on projects for children. Because even if UNESCO is mainly an education organization, its role can only be done if fundamental rights are not respected. UNESCO is thus active in several fields closely related to education.
UNESCO works very closely with national and international entities
In addition to being in close agreement with entities such as UNICEF, UNESCO also has the role of supporting and providing assistance to local education policy projects and other local entities on which it works. More specifically, UNESCO supports education policies in all the states of the world. It must therefore imperatively work with local education officials, as well as NGOs or other educational organizations.
UNESCO therefore never acts alone, it bases its decisions and actions on the local context of each country, and acts with the State and the authorities responsible for education. Each action that UNESCO does is therefore very different from one region to another.
UNESCO establishes an adequate action plan with the context, ensures the proper implementation and progress of any education project and above all carries out the monitoring and evaluation of any project affecting education from near or far.
UNESCO is often seen as a technical and financial partner, but beyond investing in education projects, UNESCO is an integral part of the projects.
