education systems

We are the world’s only partnership and fund focused on providing quality education to children in lower-income countries.

We work to deliver

Quality Education

so that every girl and boy can have hope, opportunity and agency

We are a one-of-a-kind partnership

Doing the right thing
We work to transform education systems so that every girl and boy can get 12 years of quality education plus one year of preschool.
In the right places
We channel most of our support to the lowest income and crisis-affected countries.
At the right time
We help keep education systems running through conflict, disasters and health emergencies.
At scale
We use our funds as catalytic capital to leverage billions of additional dollars in domestic and international financing for education.

GPE helps countries build stronger education systems as a springboard to stronger economies and fairer and more stable societies, able to withstand shocks and adapt to the challenges of the 21st century.
