GRAN News - Commitment to Global Partnership for Education

GRAN News - Commitment to Global Partnership for Education

Great news! Belgium, has become the first country to make a commitment of funds to the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) third replenishment campaign.  Julia Gillard, former Australian Prime Minister and Chair of the Global Partnership for Education (GPE), says the global education crisis needs to be at the front of the minds of all world leaders. "Prime ministers and presidents need to see education as a necessary investment, akin to the investments they make in national infrastructure and defense."   

Canada too, will soon make a commitment of desperately needed funds to the GPE for the next three years.  We reminded Mr. Trudeau that Education is the foundation of economic growth and stability, and a pathway out of poverty and aid dependency. Now is the time for Canada to step up with a commitment that makes us all feel proud to be Canadians. Let’s show the world that working together we can have all children in school.
