Congratulations to the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) on a successful replenishment at the Global Education Summit last week. US$4 billion was pledged, putting the GPE firmly on the path to achieving its target of raising at least US$5 billion over the next five years.
GRAN would like to thank all who supported our GPE campaign with your letter writing, phone calls, Letters to the Editor and raising awareness through conversations and on social media. Thank you for lifting your voices for young girls and women to access quality education, giving them hope for a better future.
We are disappointed that Canada did not increase its pledge of CAN$300 million made earlier this year at the G7 summit, but we realize that this has been a particularly difficult year to advocate for development aid for education.
