>> Please share ideas through this brief survey on ways you/your organization would like to engage with the GCE-US coalition, and how you/your organization might be able to contribute, such as by hosting a coalition meeting in-person at your location, featuring your work and writing a GCE-US action blog, etc.

First Focus on Children is also leading an International Children’s Appropriations Collaborative Project so that the U.S.-based international child advocacy community can develop a combined document with proposed language for child-focused provisions in the Fiscal Year 2024 appropriations bill and report. Please email Kathy Sacco (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Miriam Abaya (email@example.com) to get involved!
Please join us in supporting global education, girls’ education, disability-inclusive education, early learning, and education in emergencies/crises for children & youth around the with the Global Campaign For Education-US.
Meta/Facebook's recurring donation match runs through December 31, 2022, or until the $7 million match fund is spent.
Please consider giving here today - all recurring or one-time contributions make a tremendous difference! For example, $50/month (with this match to then equal $100) makes it possible to train a student / youth leader to help them champion and speak out on education for all with global and local leaders!
