Back to school: Helping teens pursue their dreams in Eswatini

At the same time, I was very thrilled to be going back to school against all odds. I am so thankful to the EU for granting me this opportunity to pursue my education again. I am determined to finish school in order to realise my dream of becoming a teacher one day. My future is now assured”

Betty received some other good news - some teachers at the school volunteered to take care of her transport to and from school. Her dream of becoming an artist one day is back on track.

I am so grateful to the EU for this support. They have rescued my future. I am now determined to do well in school in order to realise my dreams.

EU support to the education sector in Eswatini dates back many years and continues to assist the country’s efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly SDG 4 to "Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.”

These important efforts will ensure a brighter future and greater chances for all Emaswati children to pursue their dreams regardless of gender, disability or background.
