Thank You Festival Action: Let's educate 29 million kids

What if I said that you had the power to change the lives of 29 million children?

Stay with me here.

It all starts with education. Access to education is crucial to ensuring that all children have the opportunity to thrive. Children who have the chance to stay in school are less likely to be forced into early marriages or work dangerous jobs in order to feed their families. 

At the start of the new millennium, world leaders made a promise to provide universal primary education for all children. It’s up to us to make sure they keep it.

The Global Partnership for Education (GPE) is a global partnership committed to making sure every kid, regardless of where they’re born, has access to education. They're raising $3.5 billion to get 29 million more children into school in just 4 years

That's where we come in.

Sign our petition in support of the Global Partnership for Education. Let’s call on our governments to stand up change the lives of 29 million kids.
