Act now to commit the UK to the future of education

Girl in school Ethiopia (2)Education for all is at a critical moment. While some great progress has been made, there are still 57 million primary age children out of school around the world and a further 69 million adolescents are unable to attend lower secondary school.

Meanwhile, global spending on education is declining just when it is needed most.

The Global Partnership for Education (GPE) is a unique organisation that is at the forefront of tackling this crisis by supporting education in fragile and conflict-affected states, promoting girls’ education, helping countries increase basic numeracy and literacy skills, and improving teacher effectiveness.

This year, the GPE is launching a crucial ‘replenishment’ that could be a turning point for the future of education. This month we’re asking the UK Government to lead the call for an ambitious replenishment campaign aiming to raise US$4 billion for the GPE fund to help get every child into school for a quality education.

ACT NOW: Read our action materials, join an action call on the 4th Feb with our special guest speaker Sarah Beardmore, Advocacy Officer at the GPE and take our e-action as soon as possible.
