#EducationCountdown

August 18th marks 500 days until the deadline to get every child into school. 

In 2000, Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 2 set out to ensure that by 2015 children everywhere would be able to complete a full course of primary education. Yet, as we approach the deadline, 58 million children remain out of school. Hundreds of millions more are not learning. At the current rate of progress, it will be 2086 before the last girl is able to go to attend primary school. This is unacceptable.

In order to achieve this goal, we must eliminate the largest barriers that keep millions of children out of school. The #EducationCountdown Campaign brings together NGOs, civil society, teachers, youth, faith-based organizations, and the business community in a global movement to marshal the political will and financing needed to succeed.

This is a campaign about equal opportunity for every child and young person.

Now is the time to act.
