Campaign for education

Campaign for education

Everyone has the right to an education. But there are 69 million children out of school and almost one billion adults who cannot read or write. The Global Campaign for Education aims to put an end to this crisis.

Every year, campaigners all over the world unite for one week in May. This is called the Global Action Week.

Education for all

Our mission is to put pressure on governments to ensure everyone receives an education. Concern's Lizzy Noone said: 

Education is the key to reducing poverty. It’s the best tool to reduce hunger, create political stability and empower women in developing countries.
