Our series of technical briefs, 'Putting SDG4 into practice', bundles our knowledge and experience of different themes in various country-specific contexts. Each edition zooms in on a specific building block of quality education, and how VVOB strengthens them in its partner countries.

Putting SDG4 into practice #4: Enhancing adolescent wellbeing, learning and opportunities

There are over 1.2 billion adolescents in the world today, an all-time high. The vast majority of these 10-to-19-year-olds live in lower and middle-income countries (LMICs). Adolescence is a transformational phase of human life, but also a period of heightened risk and vulnerability. International literature identifies quality secondary education as a pivotal factor in raising the future opportunities for adolescents.
