No matter where you were born, education provides the opportunity to achieve one’s potential.
Australian’s can be that change with the Global Partnership for Education, giving that opportunity to millions women and girls across the globe.
Established in 2002, the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) is the only global fund dedicated solely to strengthen education systems in the world’s poorest countries. GPE brings together national governments, donor countries, multilateral agencies, international organisations, foundations, the private sector and civil society to allocate technical and financial resources where they are needed most.
On February 2, 2018, world leaders will have the opportunity to come together in Dakar, Senegal for the GPE Replenishment Conference and take concrete steps towards making quality education available for children living in the world’s poorest countries.
We ask Australia to pledge $200 million to GPE’s third replenishment.
To amplify our collective effort, it is most effective to write directly to your local MPs!
If together we can get 40 MPs to write to Julie Bishop, she will hear the message loudly from her colleagues that there’s public support for GPE. Sending a strong signal to her that we want Australia to demonstrate our leadership in promoting access to education, particularly for women and girls.
The most powerful way to write is in your own words. We have created a template letter to help guide you along as well.
