Education is a human right

The right to education is enshrined in article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The declaration calls for free and compulsory elementary education. The Convention on the Rights of the Child, adopted in 1989, goes further to stipulate that countries shall make higher education accessible to all.

Education is key to sustainable development

When it adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in September 2015, the international community recognized that education is essential for the success of all 17 of its goals. Sustainable Development Goal 4, in particular, aims to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all” by 2030.

Challenges to achieving universal education

Education offers children a ladder out of poverty and a path to a promising future. But about 265 million children and adolescents around the world do not have the opportunity to enter or complete school; 617 million children and adolescents cannot read and do basic math; less than 40% of girls in sub-Saharan Africa complete lower secondary school and some four million children and youth refugees are out of school. Their right to education is being violated and it is unacceptable. >

Without inclusive and equitable quality education and lifelong opportunities for all, countries will not succeed in achieving gender equality and breaking the cycle of poverty that is leaving millions of children, youth and adults behind.

Mehr to Mehr campaign

HAMI Association continued the campaign of Mehr to Mehr as years before to support the humanitarian actions in deprived border locations in Sistan province.

“Sistan and Baluchestan has the country’s largest number of children left out of school. Girl children make up the majority of the children deprived of education.”

Sistan and Balochistan has the highest percentage of illiteracy among girls in Iran. More than three million Iranian children are hindered from education, among which girls are the most affected. While poverty is one of the main factors impeding education in Iran, children from Balochistan – the most underdeveloped and poorest regions in Iran – are suffering the most.

according to this situation in Sistan and  due to  the Corona pandemic in past two years we tried to bring a little happiness to the families and students in few schools of Sistan during this new  academic year .

HAMI has defined itself as an educational association so we try our best to be useful and supportive.

 providing educational support and  a real motivation for the education of  vulnerable students are our first targets. so Mehr to Mehr campaign is our opportunity to accomplish this aim with your help and assistance.

.Obviously, this honor is due to your support in providing  humanitarian steps.
