Rihanna is to join a campaign to ensure that girls and boys in the world’s poorest countries can get a quality education. Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation today announced a multi-year partnership with the Global Partnership for Education and international advocacy group Global Citizen.
Women Deliver launched a campaign to promote much-needed investments in girls and in women. The founding partners joining Women Deliver in the launch include: Global Partnership for Education, Business for Social Responsibility, FHI 360, Plan International, among others.
Among the actions that need to happen to ensure refugees have access to quality education is that funding is multi-year and predictable. Encouragingly, countries are starting to include refugees in national planning documents. In 2016, Chad became the first country to receive funding from the GPE to support the education of refugees.
