GPE's Case for Investment is launching in the Middle East, in partnership with Dubai Cares and the Islamic Development Bank. This launch is a key milestone in GPE’s “Raise Your Hand” campaign, which aims to secure at least US$5 billion to help transform education in 90 lower-income countries and territories.
As the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbates the global education crisis, GPE’s financing campaign is a unique opportunity to create systemic change to education systems and give the most vulnerable children a chance to learn.
This virtual event will feature high-level dignitaries from GCC countries and will wrap up a three-day visit to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia by GPE Vice-Chair Serigne Mbaye Thiam.
