Goal two: Quality Education
Education is of paramount priority for socio-economic development of the country and is a key component for poverty reduction. The government of Bangladesh has a strong national commitment to ensure education for all and moving towards the realization of goal 4 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Hence the government undertook different projects to promote education for children in Bangladesh: compulsory primary education for all, free education for girls up to grade 10, stipends for female students, a nationwide integrated education system and a food-for-education literacy movement.
Caritas Bangladesh also prioritizes education for sustainable human development and ensuring social justice for all. Caritas intends to work with the government utilizing its expertise in formal, non-formal and vocational education for the poorest of the poor, hardest to reach and children with disabilities.
Some key achievements are highlighted below:
The ultimate goal of all the above interventions is to develop human resources in the country. Morality and value education is the cross cutting issue in all programs which is very crucial in the current situation of Bangladesh. Continuation of education and completion of higher education is a challenge for the marginalized community children. However, Caritas is committed to continue its efforts to achieve the goal and fulfill its vision.
