Subject: Advocacy Video " Mother tongue-based Multilingual Education - A Key to Quality Education"

Dear fellow steering committee members,

I am pleased to share with you an approximately  3 minutes advocacy video titled : “Mother tongue-based Multilingual Education – A Key to Quality Education”, produced by UNESCO Bangkok. The video has just been uploaded in UNESCO’s TV channel on Youtube at:

For your information, here is the description of the video:
“Worldwide nearly 7000 languages are spoken today. Many languages are spoken by ethnic minorities who are educationally and economically disadvantaged because of limited language fluency. This language gap must be bridged if countries are to fulfill the Millennium Development Goals and Education for All aims. More than 200 million children globally live in homes where languages spoken are different than the ones used in school. These children are vulnerable to non enrolment, repetition and non completion.”
