National Campaign for Education Nepal #GAWE2022 Events


The Global Action Week for Education (GAWE) stands as an annual flagship program for the educational movement. This is celebrated every year during the last week of April and is designed to draw the attention of the governments to fulfil their commitment on right to inclusive and equitable quality education and lifelong opportunities for all, ultimately contributing to SDG 4. Key education activists all over the world join together to advocate and campaign for the right to education. A week-long campaign led by Global Campaign for Education (GCE) at the global level and its member CSOs in the regions and countries is celebrated. More than 100 countries show solidarity in this movement. Each year a specific theme is defined for the campaign. NCE Nepal has been a part of this campaign since 2003 and led GAWE related advocacy, campaigning, community mobilization, networking and partnership in Nepal.

This year the campaign was celebrated from 25th April to 29th April with the theme ‘Protect Education in Emergency Now’. This year too NCE Nepal and its member organizations celebrated GAWE massively through organizing campaigns, discourses, interaction programs, conferences, sit-in programmes, demonstrations, appeal submission, rallies and mobilization media including social media at the local, district, province and federal levels with a key message ‘Protect Public Education in all situations such as emergency, pandemic, disasters or any kind of political activities. During the GAWE campaign, the country was in the context of the local election. Hence, NCE Nepal took the GAWE campaign as an opportunity to engage with political parties and legislatures from the local to the federal level to advocate with them for prioritizing the educational agenda in their election manifesto and an election campaign to ensure free, qualitative and inclusive education for all. This year, the GAWE campaign was amplified with massive social media mobilization as well as dissemination of messages and informative posters, pamphlets and stickers along with flex with CSO demands and these were pasted in the public places too. Key messages were aired through local radios. In this campaign, there was wider participation of education rights activists, NCE Nepal members, civil society organizations, parliamentarians, government officials, political party leaders, youths, parents, people with disabilities, LGBTIQ, teachers and students.
