My Voice-My School gives students the opportunity to share their ideas about education and their future. It allows students to have a voice in the development of global quality education as part of the UN Global Goals.
Students work on an advocacy campaign on one of the aspects of quality education and share this with their school, community, and national and international decision-makers.
The concept of a 'quality education' is embedded in the United Nations Global Goals 4 - Quality Education
Global Goals 4 - Quality Education
The UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development were adopted by World Leaders on 25 September 2015. They build on the work of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) which ran from 2000 to 2015. The MDGs contained Goal 2 - Achieve Universal Primary Education.

Citizenship / English | Ages 11 - 14, 14 - 16
My Voice-My School focuses on the topic of quality education as enshrined in the United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development. Connecting UNRWA's schools with partner schools overseas, the project seeks to stimulate student conversation about quality education and what individuals and communities can do to help make it a reality for all.
