GPE’s replenishment for 2018-2020 aims to raise significant commitments to education from partner countries, and current and new donors in order to ensure that all children and youth are in school and learning
The replenishment campaign for 2018-2020 is an opportunity to raise the funds needed to implement GPE 2020, the partnership’s strategic plan, and to increase global education financing to ensure SDG 4 can be met.
Launched in 2016, the Education Commission report generated strong momentum for a more ambitious education agenda. Throughout 2017, strong support from civil society and the influence of individual champions made 2017 a defining year for global education, with GPE’s replenishment presenting an opportunity to deliver a substantive outcome.
At the UN General Assembly in September 2017, world leaders gathered at the Financing the Future: Education 2030 event and pledged their support to education, in particular to GPE's replenishment.
On February 1 and 2, 2018, the GPE Financing Conference took place in Dakar, Senegal, co-hosted by Macky Sall, President of Senegal, and Emmanuel Macron, President of France. GPE's Global Ambassador Rihanna was also in attendance. At the event, donors pledged US$2.3 billion for GPE, and developing countries pledged US$110 billion for education for 2018-2020.
