Education transforms lives: UNESCO stories

Education has the power to transform people’s lives no matter where they live. Since 1945, UNESCO has worked to ensure that all children, youth and adults enjoy their right to education and reach their full potential.

From Guatemala to Nepal, Tanzania to Jordan - from pre-school to higher education - read a selection of inspiring UNESCO stories showing the impact of its projects and programmes on every day people around the world. Access to quality education has the power to transform lives and gives a voice to marginalized communities worldwide.
