Ask the Prime Minister to increase support for education for all
Education needs more funding now, especially given the impacts of the pandemic. The UK Government knows this, and have agreed to co-host the Global Education Summit in July, to raise funds to the Global Partnership for Education (GPE). The GPE is the world’s leading organisation that supports governments in many poorer countries to fund and strengthen their education systems. As co-host, we expect the UK Government to make an ambitious and early pledge, but so far they have fallen short, promising £170 million less than their fare share. The recently announced cuts to UK aid also make it hard to see how the UK government can make a reality of its stated commitment to girls’ education.
Now we're asking that the UK increase their pledge to the GPE's nex five year period, topping it up to £600 million before the Global Education summit in July.
