International Day of Education 2024 - How We Help?

17 Jan 2024

At the very beginning of the year, the world celebrates an important day, the International Day of Education. Education is the core of every society, it is a ladder that leads to a prosperous life, healthier life, and more peaceful life. Without education, there would never be a light at the end of the tunnel. With a growing number of children and adults who do not have access to proper education, every step in aiding education counts.

This is why we have decided to partner with the Malala Fund and help women get the education they deserve. This article will present you with the history of International Day of Education, its goals, and show you how we at agood company help education.

International Day of Education - how did it all begin?

With more than 250 million children without access to education and more than 600 million illiterate adults, there was a strong need for an International Day of Education. Research shows that lack of education leads to poverty, higher crime rates, and injustices on all levels. Without education, there is no hope of a better, safer future for millions of children.

On December 18, 2018, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed January 24th to be the International Day of Education. From then on, this day has been marked by workshops, seminars, and social campaigns throughout the world. For the sixth year in a row, the mission of celebrating this day is to raise awareness of the importance of education.

The theme of the International Day of Education 2024

Every International day of Education has a specific theme that corresponds to the current world situation. Unfortunately, we are witnessing the rise in violent conflicts, wars, and crime seemingly in every corner of the world. This is why the theme for 2024 is Learning for Lasting Peace.

The UNESCO Recommendation for Peace, Human Rights and Sustainable Development outlines that education has to be transformative in order to aid peace around the world. Indeed, education has the power to transform the lives of millions, as it lowers discrimination, inequality, injustice, and poverty rates.

The goals for International Day of Education 2024

The main goals for this year`s International Day of Education are plentiful. Here are some of the most important ones:

  • To highlight the importance of education in sustaining peace both locally and globally.
  • To call for higher levels of education financing both in domestic and international education.
  • To celebrate the role of educators that they have in creating a peaceful society.
  • To discuss the challenges that education for peace faces and come up with possible solutions.
  • To impact influencers and civil society to bring education to a central focus worldwide.

How we help?

While it is unimaginable for the majority of us that someone does not have access to education, this is a harsh reality for many around the world. Over 130 million girls do not have access to education, and it is our mission to lower this number.

Protect Women Education

As we have seen, one of the main goals for education is better financing. This is why we have partnered with Malala Fund, and decided to donate money from the sales of certain products. Every time you shop, strive to shop by purpose, it can truly save the world and girls' education.

Our goal is to fund education for 3 years, for 10000 girls. We cannot do this alone, but together with you, we can help fight the inequalities and injustices when it comes to women's education.

Why Malala Fund?

Malala Fund is a unique charity that helps bring down the systemic barriers that prevent girls from getting the education they deserve. They operate in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Brazil, Ethiopia, Lebanon, Pakistan, and many other countries.

So far, they have donated $47 million to activists who tackle policies which prevent girls from going to school. Due to their efforts, female education has been incorporated into the UN Sustainable Development Goals, thus gaining even more credibility.

We chose the Malala Fund because we believe that is important to enable millions of girls to get the right to education. It is not fair that young, bright minds stay at home just because of their gender. Unfortunately, in many countries girls` education is undermined, and our mission is to stop this. This is why we are proud to partner with the Malala Fund.

Shop by purpose to donate to girls' education

We offer high-quality, eco-friendly products that do not harm the environment. From every product sold, we either donate money or do eco-friendly things such as planting a tree. We will now present you with the products, from which we directly donate to the Malala Fund after you buy them.

Phone case

The phone case helping protect women's education is not a myth, it is a fantastic reality. The eco-friendly mobile phone cases are not only climate-positive,  but they aid in donations for women's education.

Made from locally sourced flax and hemp in Sweden, they contain no toxic substances and present no harm to the environment. They will protect your phone against drop damage scratches and dents as well. The packaging comes in made of stone paper and can be recycled as paper, making the whole product even more sustainable. Choose among many beautiful designs for your iPhone, and rest assured you have done a good deed for women's education as well.

Screen protectors

Just like every phone needs a screen protector, every girl needs the right to proper education. This is why we donate money from each screen protector sold, which is eco-friendly at the same time. We use our products to try to solve major problems in the world. In this way, we hope to make the world a safer place, as only equality and education can lead us towards a war-free future.

Recyclable Tempered Glass Screen Protector

Our tempered glass screen protectors are made of the highest-quality glass with a 9H hardness rating. With a 2-metre drop protection, they are efficient in preserving your phone from damage. Each screen protector consists of 46% recycled glass making it climate-positive and circular. We are certain you will enjoy using this product more, knowing that girls around the world get the education they deserve.

Bluetooth speaker by Gomi

Education is the key to making this world more sustainable. Without proper education, we would never be able to create an entirely eco-friendly Bluetooth speaker from recycled plastic cases. Unique design, high-quality sound, and rechargeable batteries are just some of the reasons why you should get this speaker for your home, or as a gift to someone you love.

The speaker's role is to play a louder sound, and we want to do the same with our donations. We want to be as loud as the speaker in advocating for better conditions in women's education. Using eco-friendly products we want to do multiple things. Save the planet, or at least make a greener place, and deal with issues of utmost importance, such as providing education to those in need.

Inclusive handmade dolls

A perfect gift for your child comes in the form of these beautiful, non-toxic handmade dolls. Made from durable materials, in many colours and sizes, they will stimulate imaginative play, and incite empathy in your kids. And if there is something that we need more of today, we would have to say empathy. Handmade inclusive dolls for children are the right tool to help children understand the world around them.

We can and we should nurture environmental awareness in our children and these dolls are one way in which we can do this. From a very young age, we can teach them that discrimination and intolerance serve no useful purpose.

Conscious jewellery

Jewellery has the power to directly express our personality, style, and the choices we made. Luckily, more and more people realise that shopping for eco-friendly products is the only right way to shop. This is why we have partnered with Lunar James company, as they create jewellery that is in harmony with Mother Nature.

Earrings, pendants, necklaces, and rings will forever transform the way you experience jewellery. Its style, unique design, fresh colours, and connection to nature will make everyone who wears them feel good. This sustainable handmade jewellery collection is perfect for your business meetings, and dinner with friends, but also for a casual walk in the park. It will perfectly embody your current mood, and everyone will notice how stylish your jewellery is.

Final word

And you can also support our efforts in aiding women's education by shopping by purpose. We will donate a share of our profit for every phone case, screen protector, jewellery, inclusive doll, and Bluetooth speaker sold.
