Global Action Week is one of the major focal points for the education movement. It provides every national and regional education campaign with an opportunity to highlight one area of the Education For All agenda and make targeted efforts to achieve change on the ground, with the added support of education campaigners and millions of members of the public worldwide joining together for the same cause.
Every Child Needs a Teacher
61 million children are not in primary school The biggest thing we can do to give them their right to education is make sure they have access to a trained teacher. To do this, we need 1.7 million more teachers – 1 million more in Africa alone.
Right's From The Start
Every child has the right to education, and these rights start from birth.
But every year, over 200 million children under the age of five do not receive these rights, giving them less chance to achieve their potential and end the cycle of poverty.
The Global Campaign for Education is calling on world leaders to keep their promises and ensure early childhood care and education for every child - right from the start. View site
