Global Action Week

May 4th-11th is Global Action Week. Global Action Week is an international focal point for education with events taking place in over 100 countries highlighting the importance of education for all. With this week, GCE chapters around the world work to raise awareness and create political will through advocacy to ensure that all children around the world have access to education. This year’s global theme is Equal Right, Equal Opportunity focusing on education and children with disabilities.

Globally, there are nearly 66 million girls out of school. Advocacy is a critical component to advancing the global conversation for girls’ education. To celebrate Global Action Week, we are partnering with the Global Campaign for Education, United States Chapter to highlight the importance of education for girls.

Join the Global Conversation!
