The Nasser Fellowship is based on Goal 4 of the Sustainable Development Goals: “Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education for all.”
Education is one of the most powerful and stable means of achieving sustainable development. The aim is to provide equal access to vocational training, eliminate disparities due to gender or wealth in access to education, and guarantee universal access to high-quality education.
Goal 5: “Achieve Gender Equality and Empower all Women and Girls” Ensure equal rights in education, work, and public life, and economic resources (such as women’s share of lands and assets).
Ensure universal access to quality sexual and reproductive health services. Despite the higher number of women in public positions today than ever before, greater gender equality cannot be ensured without strengthening policies, legislation and programs that encourage and qualify women to assume leadership positions.
Goal 17: “Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development”
Enhance South-North/ South-South Cooperation by supporting national plans that aim to achieve all the goals. Improving access to technology and knowledge is an important means of exchanging ideas and promoting innovation.
This is vital to achieve sustainable growth and development by passionately committing to partnerships and cooperation, at the international level.
