Education is a human right, a public good, and a public responsibility. Recognizing the collective responsibilities of governments, civil society, and the international community in realizing this right, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 24 January as the International Day of Education, to continuously remind us of the role of education in realizing peace and sustainable development.
The third International Day of Education (January 24) will be marked on Monday 25 January 2021 under the theme ‘Recover and Revitalize Education for the COVID-19 Generation’. Now is the time to power education by stepping up collaboration and international solidarity to place education and lifelong learning at the center of the recovery.
This International Day of Education aims to:
- Stimulate commitments and actions to ensure educational recovery, increase inclusion and reduce drop-out rates,
- Celebrate initiatives led by governments, educators, and organizations as well as partnerships to build back more resilient and inclusive education systems,
- Advocate for increased financing and best practices inequitable education funding that effectively serves the most disadvantaged
- Give a voice to the COVID-19 generation to express their concerns and aspirations in the face of a future under the shadow of economic recession and climate change.
Global Youth Leaders Make a Difference
The Global Youth Leaders’ Forum (GYLF) is a youth initiative established for nurturing young people for global leadership. It’s a viable network with the primary objective of helping youths maximize their God-given leadership potentials, as well as helping them to drive a transformative change in their societies and nations at large. The Global Youth Leaders’ Academy is a special initiative of the Global Youth Leaders’ Forum designed to inspire and provoke a radical transformation in students, to make them exceptional leaders who would impact their world, and proffer lasting solutions to societal challenges.
The Global Youth Leaders Forum helps make an outstanding contribution to education. At the beginning of the academic year, there were significant changes in the educational system in Egypt, which was making learning difficult for students. With a goal to produce high flyers despite these challenges, the GYLF team in Egypt organized morning classes for students of different levels. Provision was made for laptops, internet access, and other essential materials needed for the students to learn in a conducive atmosphere and earn good grades. There is no doubt that the GYLF has the best interest of students in mind and distinction will be the results.
Youth Leaders Prepare to Meet God
In our ‘Year of Preparation’, how are you making preparations to meet God? Are you winning souls? Are you impacting your world with God’s investment in you? What feats do you plan to achieve for the Gospel in the Year of Preparation? These are the many questions asked of our youths today at The Global Youth Leaders Forum.
Start Your New Life in Christ Today
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome encourages the youth to say the following prayers and to mean it with all their heart:
O Lord God, I come to You in the name of Jesus. I believe that Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that You raised Him from the dead and I confess with my mouth that Jesus Christ is the Lord of my life from today. I receive by faith, remission of sins for my soul, and right now, in the Name of Jesus Christ, I receive eternal life into my spirit. I declare with my mouth that I am born again!
