GCE-US Statement on Racism  

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights

The Global Campaign for Education (GCE) promotes and defends Education as a Basic Human Right and strives towards achieving an equitable and quality education for all, with rights and social justice at its core.

As a civil society movement, our mission is based on the underlying belief that every human being is equal, entitled to dignity and respect and should be afforded an environment which nurtures the innate potential of every individual. (Read Full Statement here)

  • * In June, Day of the African Child recognizes the power and importance of raising awareness for the ongoing need to improve the education of children living across Africa. On June 16, 1976, nearly ten thousand black students from Soweto, South Africa, marched to protest the poor quality of their education and to demonstrate their disapproval of the Black Education Act, which segregated students based on their race.
