Now more than ever, education is crucial to shaping the future we want. The future we hope for. The future we deserve. Education reduces poverty, combats diseases and boosts economic growth. Education fosters equality, strengthens communities, and equips the next generation of leaders with the skills and support to build a more safe and peaceful world. It is one of the most important investments a country can make in its people and its future.

To realize this future, where every child can receive an education, we need the world’s leaders to commit funds to education at the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) Replenishment in early 2018.

GPE’s goal is to reach financing of US$2 billion a year by 2020. To get there, all partners will need to pledge increased financing at the GPE Replenishment:

  1. Donor governments provide US$3.1 billion over 2018–2020
  2. Developing country governments allocate 20% of government expenditure to education
  3. Philanthropic foundations and private sector donors step up their targeted contributions
