Global Education Partnerships & Advocacy

  • Good news: Many thanks to Senators Roy Blunt and Chris Coons, Representatives Joaquin Castro and Brian Fitzpatrick, and all who made the Global Child Thrive Act possible. With the incredible support received, the Global Child Thrive Act is now law!
  • Thank you to Representatives Hakeem Jeffries and Ann Wagner, Senators Chuck Schumer and John Boozman, and who supported the Malala Yousafzai Scholarship Act, which was just signed into law!


  • President-elect Biden nominated Ambassador Samantha Power to lead USAID and elevated the USAID Administrator role to the National Security Council within the White House.
  • The Global Campaign for Education-US (GCE-US) condemns the violence at the U.S. Capitol. As we all witnessed grave threats to U.S. democracy, our thoughts are with all who have been injured and affected by the violence, including Members of Congress and their staff, security staff, journalists, and everyone in Washington, D.C. We thank educators and caregivers who are helping children and students discuss these events and teach democracy, peace and inclusion. Please see here for the full statement and resources for teachers, school leaders, parents, caregivers and everyone interested in social justice and education.
  • Add your voice: Take 30 seconds to sign the petition here to incoming U.S. policymakers

Give in support of education for all

An anonymous donor will match your gift three-to-one!

At a time when the impact of quality education for all has been felt in every part of the globe, an investment in education for all is more timely, more relevant, and more needed than ever before. As millions of children remain out of school, and as they return to classrooms, GCE-US promotes quality, inclusive education for every child, especially those who are most at risk of falling behind or not returning to school - girls, children with disabilities, children from displaced populations, and other marginalized groups. Your gift has triple the impact!
