The seventh edition of Humana Day is dedicated to the importance of promoting quality education to achieve progress in the most disadvantaged communities in the southern hemisphere.
Education is a key element in the fight against poverty and the development of communities and people. Thus Sustainable Development Goal number 4 is devoted to education and its main objective is "to ensure and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all."
