Hot Off the Press: Global Education Summit Outcomes

The Global Education Summit: Financing the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) 2021-2025 was a key moment for the global community to come together and support quality education for all children. At the Summit, leaders made multi-year pledges to support GPE's work and education systems around the world. At GCE-US, we collaborated with partners to organize Summit events and advocacy, including this Gender-Responsive and Disability-Inclusive Education for All discussion. Please read our press release and Summit response here, urging increased U.S. government funding to global education.


Global Education Partnerships & Advocacy

GCE-US intern and student leader Melia Oliver met with local in-district staff for Representative Barbara Lee (D-CA), advocating for global education funding and voicing support to make sure that resources supporting kids around the world do not get cut. 

"Reaching out to my member of Congress’ office was an exciting and empowering experience. I was thrilled when my outreach led to a meeting with a congressional staffer. This experience inspired me to continue advocating for policies that I care about. I would encourage everyone to request a meeting with their member of Congress (and be persistent!) when they want to make their voice heard. If we all take a small step, our collective impact would be tremendous."  ~Melia


Take Action: August is the Critical Time to Speak Up

Please join Melia and reach out to your members of Congress today! At the Global Education Summit, the U.S. government committed funding levels that would decrease funding levels to the Global Partnership for Education, but advocates like you make a vital difference in showing policymakers how important it is to not cut funding for education. Your advocacy voice is critical, especially right now when Senators are making funding decisions.
