In 2000 the world made a promise that every child would be in school by the end of 2015 - but progress has stalled. 58 million children are still out of school. Every 100 days, we will target
more key barriers to universal education. We’re bringing together top campaigners, youth, business, faith and political leaders and we need you! Can we count on you?

Of the world's out-of-school population, 28 million children live in conflict areas. We have concrete targets over the next 500 days to fund education in emergencies and protect schools from attack.Learn more
Nothing changes without pressure. Tell world leaders they must keep their promise to get every child into school by the end of 2015. Show that you're #UpForSchool.
