    How Vodacom is contributing to Quality Education

    Here's how Vodacom has contributed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4.

    The United Nations created Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to transform the world by presenting a unified vision to end poverty, reduce inequality and prevent further harm to the planet. Last week, we revealed how Vodacom has contributed to the UN SDG 3: Good Health and Wellbeing. Now we take a look at our contribution to Goal 4: Quality Education in the 2019 financial year.

    Key targets

    There are three key targets for Goal 4:

    1. to ensure that all children have access to free, equitable and quality primary and secondary education by 2030,
    2. to increase the number of youth and adults who have relevant skills by 2030, and
    3. to eliminate gender disparities in education and to ensure equal access to all levels of education for the vulnerable by 2030.

    Vodacom's commitment

    Vodacom provides affordable and quality education via mobile technology.
