Education Cannot Wait: An Interview with International Development Minister Karina Gould

Education Cannot Wait: An Interview with International Development Minister Karina Gould

My message to girls around the world facing education challenges would be this: “You are worth it. I know it is hard and there are a lot of challenges you are facing. But your hopes and dreams are worth fighting for. You have so much to offer the world. You and your voice and your experience matter. The world needs you to keep studying, to keep dreaming, to keep pushing for what you want to see in the world.”   -- Karina Gould, Minister of International Development

Canada recently committed $5.5 million to Education Cannot Wait (ECW) to support their response to the COVID-19 pandemic in meeting the educational needs of children and youth caught in emergencies.
