$2.3 Billion Required to Send Children to School in War-Torn Countries

A new paper by UNESCO’s Education For All Global Monitoring Report (EFA GMR) shows that 34 million children and adolescents are out of school in conflict-affected countries.  The most vulnerable are the hardest hit: the poorest are twice as likely to be out of school as their counterparts in peaceful countries. The paper shows that $2.3 billion is required to place them in school – ten times the amount that education is receiving from humanitarian aid right now.

World Education Forum 2015 adopts Declaration on the Future of Global Education until 2030

In April 2000, the participants of the World Education Forum held in Dakar, Senegal, adopted the Dakar Framework for Action â€œEducation for All: Meeting our Collective Commitment“. They reaffirmed the vision of the World Declaration on Education for All (EFA) adopted ten years earlier (Jomtien, Thailand, 1990) and committed to the attainment of six EFA goals, supported by 12 strategies, in order to meet the basic learning needs of all children, youth and adults by 2015. At the World Education Forum in 2000, the international community recognized the central role of civil society in the achievement of the EFA goals. Since then, civil society involvement in education has expanded considerably and strong national coalitions have emerged, alongside regional and global networks.In the light of the NGO Declaration on Education for All in Dakar, southern civil society representation in international EFA structures has been strengthened. Civil society, and notably non-governmental organizations (NGOs), are now considered a crucial EFA partner along with governments, UN agencies and the private sector.

Education for All 2000-2015: Only a Third of Countries Reached Global Education Goals

Just one third of countries have achieved all of the measurable Education for All (EFA) goals set in 2000. Only half of all countries have achieved the most watched goal of universal primary enrolment. An extra $22 billion a year is needed on top of already ambitious government contributions in order to ensure we achieve the new education targets now being set for the year 2030.

These are the key findings of the 2015 EFA Global Monitoring Report (GMR) “Education for All 2000-2015: Achievements and Challenges”, produced by UNESCO which has tracked progress on these goals for the past 15 years.

OUR MISSION


Global Education Magazine is inspired in the universal values of the Declaration of Emerging Human Rights that aims to contribute to achieve the Millennium Development Goals by United Nations (MDGs) which is supported by the Regional Offices of Latin America and the Caribbean of UNESCO and UNHCR. An initiative launched by the teaching team that formulated the proposal most voted in the group “Sustainable Development for the Eradication of Poverty in Rio+20".

Our mission is to establish a meeting point between different educational agents from all around the world. We wish to provide new opportunities for creation, dissemination and exchange of experiences and multi, inter and transdisciplinary knowledge that serve for formulation and organization of a new, complex thinking and humanistic and philanthropic feeling to interpret the currently world, respecting their cultural diversity fully, because the peace, poverty eradication and sustainable development can only be the result of equity, sprouted from the appreciation and respect for cultural diversity.

Although countless people have given their time and skill to the project, Global Education Magazine relies on your donations both to support those developers working full-time on this increasingly complex project, and to cover hardware (this server) and administrative costs (i.e. domain registrations). We would also like to start a legal defense fund should the need arise. Everyone involved is keenly interested in the future of Global Education Magazine and you can be assured donations will be used wisely. All support is very much appreciated.
