EdLodge focuses on imparting quality education and reducing inequalities.
SDG 10 addresses inequalities within and among countries. It calls for nations to reduce inequalities in income as well as those based on age, sex, disability, race, ethnicity, origin, religion, or economic or other status within a country. The goal also addresses inequalities among countries and calls for support for safe migration and mobility of people.
EdLodge Foundation provides free education and guidance to underprivileged rural youth and provides them with the recourse that they deserve. Despite this, Edlodge tries to provide quality education to underprivileged children trying to give equal education.
Providing equal opportunity to everyone irrespective of one's sex, creed, gender or religion is something EdLodge strives for since day one. Beyond a certain threshold, inequality affects growth and increases poverty. Broadly, the quality of relationships in public and political spheres as well as self-esteem.
Quality education raises consciousness about existing inequalities and contributes to ensuring that laws and social programme primarily protect disadvantaged and vulnerable people. It helps to empower and promote the social, economic and political inclusion of all, irrespective of age, sex, disability, race, ethnicity, origin, religion, economic or other status.
When we talk about inequality it has a wide definition. Inequality within countries concerns the degree to which individuals’ incomes in a country differ from each other while inequality between countries concerns the degree to which countries’ average incomes differ from each other. This creates the gap between rich and poor which widens eventually. At EdLodge, we try to bridge this gap in the simplest way possible.
Inequalities are also deepening for vulnerable populations in countries with weak health systems and humanitarian crises. Refugees and migrants, as well as indigenous peoples, older persons, people with disabilities and children are particularly at risk of being left behind.
Reducing inequalities and ensuring no one is left behind are integral to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. This is what the Edlodge Foundation is trying to do by maintaining electronic quality in learning.
