Ask Congress to Support a Bold Pledge to the Global Partnership for Education

Engage the Audience: I recently read the case for investment for the Global Partnership for Education (GPE). It made me realize how fortunate we are to have access to quality education from pre-school through college.

State the Problem: I’ve learned that 263 million children and youth around the globe who should be in school are not. I imagine what they all could achieve for themselves, their nations, and the world if they all had the opportunity to become educated as we do. 

Inform on a Solution: The Global Partnership for Education (GPE) is working to give more children the education they deserve. From 2018 to 2020 GPE plans to get 25 million additional children through school, and enhance the school experience for millions of others. But this must be a global effort.

Call to Action: Since 2011, the U.S. has made increasing annual investments in GPE. Will the senator/representative call on the Trump Administration to make a bold pledge to continue this trend at the upcoming GPE pledging conference?
