Did you hear the good news?! The European Commission just announced it will step up with €287.5 Million to support the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) between 2018 and 2020.
This is the full amount that Global Citizens called on the European Commission to contribute to global education.
That’s incredible news for 870 million children worldwide that GPE aims to help, and today’s pledge is an important step towards raising the $3.1 Billion needed when world leaders meet in Senegal for its financing conference next February to announce how much they will give to #FundEducation.
Let’s celebrate this good news by reminding other world leaders who are deciding how much to pledge right now, what stepping up for the world’s children looks like.
Let the European Commission know you’re grateful for their contribution and call on other donor countries to do the same today!
