The Day of the African Child (DAC) 2024


On the Day of the African Child (DAC) 2024, we unite under the powerful theme, “Education
for all Children in Africa: The Time is Now.”
This day is a poignant reminder of the
courageous children of Soweto who, on June 16, 1976, stood up against injustice and demanded
their right to quality education. Today, we honor their legacy by renewing our commitment to
ensuring that every child in Africa has access to quality education.
Education is the cornerstone of sustainable development, economic growth, and social
progress. It empowers individuals, transforms communities, and paves the way for a brighter
future. However, millions of children across Africa still face significant barriers to education,
including poverty, conflict, gender inequality, and inadequate infrastructure.
The theme for DAC 2024, “Education for all Children in Africa: The Time is Now,” calls for
immediate and decisive action. We must address these challenges with urgency and
determination, mobilizing resources and fostering partnerships to create inclusive, safe, and
supportive learning environments for every child in Africa. Join our campaign to honor this.

Governments, civil society, international organizations, and communities must work
collaboratively to develop and implement policies that prioritize education. This includes
increasing funding for schools, training and supporting teachers, and leveraging technology to
enhance learning opportunities. Special attention must be given to vulnerable and marginalized
children, ensuring that no child is left behind. This is why, we are mobilizing One Million
Africans to commit not just their call but $1 to end education crisis in Africa of every child.

As we commemorate the Day of the African Child, let us remember that the future of Africa
lies in the hands of its children. By investing in their education, we are investing in the
continent’s human capital development future. The time for action is now. Let us pledge to
create a world where every African child has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive by
committing $1 to scale up our work. Together, we can end the education crisis in Africa.
