  New research out today shows that 10 out of 35 countries in Africa spend a higher percentage of their national budget on #debt servicing than on #education. Debt cancellation is urgently required! #EducationNotDebt #CancelTheDebt http://bit.ly/AfricaEdFinancing Debt infographic
  Domestic financing for #education is key to building strong & resilient education systems. Gvt’s should honour their commitment to spending at least 20% of their national budget or 6% of GDP on education. Even in times of #COVID19 education budgets must be protected. #GAWE2021 Twitter/Facebook Visual
