The Global Partnership for Education is the only international organization focused on supporting countries' efforts to educate children from early primary school through secondary school.
Since the beginning of GPE’s replenishment campaign in November 2011, the GPE Fund has received approximately $2 billion in commitments.
GPE is not just about financing. More importantly, it helps all partners at the country level--developing country governments, donor governments, international organizations, civil society organizations/NGOs, and the private sector--work together to ensure that education aid is better coordinated and more effective, based on countries' own education strategies.
