Tell your government leaders to fund global education!
264 million children and youth remain out of school, 75 million of whom are from fragile contexts facing war, violence, and instability. Over 600 million more are in school, but not learning.
Global financing for education has declined in recent years, and if we do not pressure governments to commit to greater investment NOW, we risk losing generations of children to poverty, growing inequality, and lack of opportunity!
This is a critical moment for education and children around the world
Donor and partner country leaders will meet at the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) Financing Conference from 1-2 February 2018, in Dakar, Senegal, to make their commitments to financing education for the next two years.
ACEI is a participant of GPE’s international/northern civil society organizations constituency and will be represented at GPE's Financing Conference by our Executive Director, Diane Whitehead, and Director of our Center for Education Diplomacy, Yvette Murphy.
ACEI joined 43 other organizations to call on the seven largest world economies (G7) to lead donor governments’ commitment to fund education so that future generations of boys and girls can enjoy happier, healthier, and more prosperous lives.
