Meeting with leaders
We meet with heads of state and high-level officials — people with the power to shift critical resources towards education — and ask them to increase their investment in girls’ futures.
Including girls in the conversation
We believe girls should speak for themselves — that’s why we bring young education activists to high-level conferences to tell leaders what they need to learn and achieve their potential. We created Assembly, a digital publication and newsletter, as a platform for girls' voices.
We are calling on developing countries to spend 20% of their budget on education and donor countries to commit 15% of their aid to education.
We aim to grow the constituency of UN Member States that are actively advocating and investing in Education Cannot Wait, a global fund for delivering education in emergencies.
