Ensuring that by 2015 all children, particularly girls, childreen in difficult circumstances and those belonging to ethnic minorities, have access to, and complete, free and compulsory primary education of good quality.
The Education for All (EFA) movement is a global commitment to provide quality basic education for all children, youth and adults. At the World Education Forum (Dakar, 2000), 164 governments pledged to achieve EFA and identified six goals to be met by 2015. UNESCO is mandated to coordinate the collective efforts of governments, development agencies, civil society and the private sector to reach the EFA goals.
