Education is not just an issue; it is the cornerstone of our future, says Afrika Tikkun.

According to the organisdation, Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

It adds that this profound statement resonates as we consider the aspirations for the nation’s children and youth.

Every year, 01 June is International Children’s Day and, as we celebrate the potential and dreams of our young ones, it becomes even more pressing to ensure that education is a top priority, Afrika Tikkun adds.

According to the organisation, this day serves as a reminder that our children are the future and their education should be at the forefront of our national agenda. Early Childhood Development (ECD) is particularly crucial. These formative years are fundamental to a child’s overall development, setting the stage for lifelong learning and success.

Another key aspect is teacher training. The quality of education that our children receive is directly linked to the competence and dedication of their teachers. Thus, robust teacher training programmes are essential, the organisation adds.

This International Children’s Day, let’s commit to prioritising the educational needs of our children. Let us secure the future of our nation through the power of education, Afrika Tikkun concludes.
