Quality education is vital to breaking the cycle of poverty, increasing gender equality, improving maternal health outcomes, improving the environment and decreasing the likelihood of war and conflict. Education is truly the foundation of society. Yet over 260 million children around the world are currently out of school.
By financing the Global Partnership for Education (GPE), we can ensure even the world’s most marginalized children and youth have access to quality education. GPE is a partnership that brings together governments, schools, and community groups in order to ensure quality education for all children and youth around the world.
With the GPE Financing Conference fast approaching in February, now is the time for US leadership to take action to ensure a successful replenishment in 2018 and continue to prioritize quality education for all. Your leaders need to hear from you!
We are calling on the US Government to commit $337.5 million over three years at the February 2018 Global Partnership for Education Financing Conference in Senegal. We urge them to invest in the future of all children and youth, and prioritize quality education for all.
Please sign this petition and ask everyone in your networks to join you in this effort. The Global Campaign for Education-US will distribute this petition to US Government leadership.
