64 million more children are attending primary school in 2014 compared to 2002, only one of the many ways the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) is making a difference.  This week the GPE launched a new funding drive that will ask governments, development organizations and philanthropists to increase their financial commitments to education. “The Case for Investment” is the theme for the GPE's third replenishment drive and this theme describes why investing in education is crucial to achieving not just the education global goal but also prosperity and security for the world. GPE's ambitious goal is to deliver better learning and equity outcomes for 870 million children and youth in 89 countries by 2030.  Have a look at the “Case for Investment” to learn more and to read about the stories of some of the GPE’s success stories in sub Saharan Africa.
