The Six Core Action Areas of Education for All (EFA) that Global Educators seek to facilitate

Expand early childhood care and education
The goal calls for better and more possibilities to support young children, and their families and communities, in all the areas where the child is growing – physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually.
   
Provide free and compulsory primary education for all

Therefore this goal sets the objective of seeing that all children – girls as well as boys – go to school and finish primary education.
   
Promote learning and life skills for young people and adults

This goal places the emphasis on the learning needs of young people and adults in the context of lifelong learning.
   
  Increase adult literacy by 50 per cent

This goal calls for a certain level of improvement in adult literacy by 2015 – it says that it should be 50 per cent better than it was in 2000.
   
Achieve gender parity by 2005, gender equality by 2015

This goal calls for an equal number of girls and boys to be enrolled in primary and secondary school by 2015 – this is what gender parity means.
   
Improve the quality of education
