Dubai Cares, the global humanitarian organisation, has established a new education ecosystem that aims to improve education around the world by putting children, especially those who are out of school, at the centre of human development.
Dubai Cares is formally associated with the United Nations Department of Global Communications and is part of Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (UNDGC). According to the organisation, the publication of the comprehensive and action-oriented guiding framework for a future-focused and human-centric ecosystem comes after a long and inclusive consultation journey in response to worldwide calls to action on the most pressing education concerns.
Out-of-school children will also get access to formal learning
The launch of the framework, which was announced by Dr Tariq Al Gurg, CEO and vice-chairman of Dubai Cares, and the chairman of the Global Council on SDG 4, during a high-level panel discussion in Dubai, will have a far-reaching impact.
This new education ecosystem is set to be unveiled on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in September 2022. It will be held during the UN Transforming Education Summit that will be convened by the UN Secretary-General, António Guterres.
The initiative restores humanity’s place at the centre of learning by focusing on improving global education and developing people who are ready for the future in terms of opportunities by establishing basic competencies that will enable them to reach their full potential. It will cater to the evolving needs of young people around the world in terms of technology, connectivity, inclusivity, core competencies, skills, values, leadership, and gender equality, among others.

With regard to out-of-school children, this new education ecosystem will facilitate their access to formal learning opportunities through a variety of pathways that lead to certification and accreditation, allowing them to access the same opportunities as their peers who have completed formal education.
