What’s happening

In 2000, world leaders made a commitment to provide quality education for everyone by 2015. GCE developed several campaigns to help achieve this goal.

Every Child Needs a Teacher Campaign

GCE is working with national governments to provide more quality teachers. Globally, 1.7 million primary school teachers are needed to reach the 2015 educational goal.

commitment:承諾、保證
achieve:完成、達成、達到、成就
achievement:成就
globally:全球地、國際地、全面地、全世界

Literacy For All Campaign

Today, nearly 1 in 6 people around the world cannot read or write. Not being able to read impacts a person’s job opportunities and increases poverty. GCE seeks to provide teaching materials in primary students’ mother tongues.

Make it Right For Girls Campaign

Around the world, many girls face neglect and are often denied an education. GCE aims to give women the same opportunities as men.

Every spring, GCE leads the Global Action Week. During this week, GCE highlights people who have been denied educational opportunities. This year the Global Action Week focuses on providing an education to disabled people.

GCE believes that quality education can change lives.
