SDG 4 Quality Education
Quality Education is a Sustainable Development Goal that focuses on access to universal and equitable education for all. The UN aims to achieve this target of universal, free and equal access to primary and secondary education for all boys and girls by 2030, thus leading to a decade of action from 20020-2030 towards achieving this goal.
This target carries prominence due to the low completion rate and the disproportionate enrolment rate of girl students. Many existing schools lack necessary infrastructure from washrooms to books. Education is a tool for the social upward movement of downtrodden communities, and the medium to peace. Therefore it is important for all individuals to participate towards this goal and educate people to create a better society.
How to plan a book drive
Touch-A-Life with your book- school to school
A Global book donation drive that aims to hold a direct school to school connection, and build a student to student empathy. The drive focuses on providing the underserved with necessary educational supplies in the form of notebooks, stationery supplies, books, mobile devices etc to enrich their learning and take the community a step forward towards gaining Quality Education. It calls for action from schools and students to proactively work towards collection of resources for the underserved students.
The underserved schools can be identified by the schools themselves in addition to those identified by TALTransformers and partner organizations. The donations can happen on digital platforms as well, ranging from audio notes of books and e-books for TAL digital library, to funds in TALGiving which will be directed towards providing resources to the schools. The pickup and drop of the resources is managed by TALTransformers.
