Over the past two centuries, the world economy has been massively transformed through industrialization, mechanization, computerization, innovation and globalization. These transformations demand an updated version of knowledge, skillful application of knowledge and entrepreneurship sparks. In the digital era we are pushing hard to reach those innovative and sparkling mind and organization to visualize the global sustainable goals. Despite challenges, the worldwide movement to universalize a long cycle of education and improve learning levels gathers steam. These aspirations are deeply embedded in our vision in the form of the aims, policies and plans. We stand to make more accessible education, job enrichment and to develop skills every individuals, even those in hard-to-reach locations and marginalized groups, with the opportunity to become educated and skilled. The aim of good quality education for all has become the norm, driving national commitments and the activities of international agencies and external donors, bolstered by human rights conventions. If it were to be achieved, the new global education goal would mean that each and every child, regardless of birth circumstances, would have a chance to acquire valuable knowledge, skills and attitudes that could improve the quality of their lives from personal, civic, social and employment-related perspectives. We as an organization, emphasizes the inequity and unsustainability of global and national economies, and the various roles education plays in this respect. Modern economic systems have increased the value of and demand for educated labor, especially as a source of innovation-led economic growth. Education cannot serve as a cure-all for society’s problems. Global social and economic challenges are interdependent, involving sectors beyond education, and education is provided within the context of entrenched social and political institutions that are resistant to change. At the same time, education reforms are no quick fix if not reinforced by changes in the home, workplace and community that result in altering, for example, stereotypical gender roles or attitudes towards people who face discrimination on any grounds, from ethnicity to disability. Politics, economics, health, water, sanitation, energy, migration, conflict and climate have direct effects on education systems. Yet formal, non-formal and informal education can lay the groundwork for transforming institutions and norms to address today’s pressing challenges in tangible ways. When designed smartly, and conveyed by well-prepared organization, education-based programmes can inculcate values of tolerance and equality and employability and we are committed for the same.
