Malawi president Peter Mutharika on Monday called on United Nations members to invest in the trinity of education thus knowledge, character and skills.

Mutharika said there are 250 million children and youths who are out of school and another 850 million youths who will not have basic secondary level skills if nothing is done by 2030.

“Education is the foundation of socio-economic development in every country. But let me urge nations to invest in balanced education. We must encourage member states to invest in the trinity of education, that is knowledge, character and skills,” said Mutharika when he co-chaired a high-level meeting at the UN for the United Nations International Commission on Financing Global Education Opportunity.
