About the Global Partnership
A good quality education for all children, everywhere, so they fulfill their potential and contribute to their societies
To galvanize and coordinate a global effort to deliver a good quality education to all girls and boys, prioritizing the poorest and most vulnerable
In 2011, 57 million primary-school aged children were out of school in developing countries, and millions more are shut of secondary school.
The Global Partnership for Education is the only multilateral partnership devoted to getting all these children into school for a quality education.
Established in 2002, the Global Partnership for Education is comprised of close to 60 developing countries, donor governments, international organizations, the private sector, teachers, and civil society/NGO groups.
Our partnership has fundamentally transformed international cooperation in education.
We help our developing country partners develop and implement sound education plans. Members of the Partnership mobilize and coordinate resources to support the achievement of the plans' goals to enroll more children in school for a better education.
By promoting dialogue among our partners around shared objectives, we foster mutual accountability, increase our shared knowledge about best practices, and encourage transparency at all levels. Our support strengthens the growth of the entire education system in developing countries while ensuring that external education funding is tracked and coordinated.
