Knorr-Bremse Global Care supports education projects because high-quality education is the key prerequisite for professional and social advancement. A good education gives people the chance to escape poverty.

As a company-funded organization, Knorr-Bremse Global Care has focused its commitment to education, in particular on the improved access to tertiary education, including vocational preparation and orientation. This creates the global conditions for the reduction of youth unemployment, decent work and a self-determined life, as well as higher resilience towards crises.

Our contribution to Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4 - Quality Education

SDG 4 and its targets aim to ensure inclusive, equitable, quality education and facilitate lifelong learning. Everyone should have access to affordable, high-quality education, from primary schooling through to vocational education and university studies. This is what creates the global conditions for decent work and balanced economic growth.

With our focus on access to tertiary education, including vocational training, we are thus aiming at the SDG sub-targets 4.3 and 4.4. in particular. The former shall ensure equal access for all women and men to affordable and quality technical, vocational and tertiary education, including university by 2030. The second pursues to substantially increase the number of youth and adults who have relevant skills, including technical and vocational skills, for employment, decent jobs and entrepreneurship.

In its support measures, Knorr-Bremse Global Care places great emphasis on medium- to long-term education and infrastructure projects. By promoting vocational training programs – some in partnership with the Knorr-Bremse Group – Knorr-Bremse Global Care offers young people better chances of finding jobs, earning a living and leading independent lives in the long term.
