Goal 4: Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all

Toward the end of 2019, many kids and youngsters were still out of school, and the greater part of those in school was not satisfying the least capability guidelines in perusing and numeracy. Schools' conclusion to slow the spread of COVID-19 is adversely affecting learning results and the social and conduct advancement of youngsters. It has influenced more than 90% of the world's understudy populace with around 1.5 billion children. Albeit far-off, learning is given to numerous understudies, youngsters, and children in powerless and hindered networks. For example, those living in far off zones, extraordinary destitution, delicate states, and outcast camps do not have similar access to it. The computerized separation will augment existing holes in correspondence as to instruction.

The accompanying examination ventures have been explicitly adjusted to Sustainable Development Goal 4 and the mean to guarantee comprehensive and fair quality instruction and advance long-lasting learning open doors for all. ITU hosts several studies to tackle with quality of education problem, especially among children who live in poverty.

These tasks and activities are instances of the University's commitment to the SDGs.
