IDAY is an international network of 23 national coalitions bringing together 338 associations in Africa and Europe. Uniting for a shared goal, education, these associations strive to make their voice heard. The network advocates with the governments for every child and youth in Africa to enjoy their right to free quality basic education. Millions of them are still deprived of it today.
The network strives to foster society where all individuals, especially the youth, have access to quality basic education without discrimination (pre-school education, formal primary education, vocational literacy for the youth).
Through constructive dialogue between the African civil society and the African authorities, promote policies, systems and practices that guarantee a quality basic education to all children and youth in Africa.
The right of all children and youth in Africa to quality basic education is effectively enforced by quality, inclusive and sustainable education systems.
African civil society organisations strengthen their collective capacity actively and efficiently advocate for and monitor Quality Education For All (QEFA) in Africa, with a focus on the needs of neglected vulnerable children and youth.
