We are pleased to announce that our July action meetings will take place next Tuesday July 3rd at 8pm. Our guest on the call will be Sunit Bagree from Sightsavers.
When it was founded in 2002 the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) pledged that it would seek to ‘help get the most marginalised children into school.’ Ten years on, and there are still millions of marginalised children who are systematically denied an education all over the world. The GPE has recently promised that it will be making a renewed push to get girls, one of the most marginalised groups, into school and learning.
That is hugely welcomed, but there is still much more to be done. Children are marginalised for a huge range of reasons, such as living with a disability, being an ethnic or linguistic minority, being extremely poor or as a result of cultural practices. If we are to meet the Millennium Development Goal of universal primary education by 2015 these groups need their specific needs addressed, now. This month we will be working to make sure that is the case.
This month there are groups meeting to join the conference call in:Central London, South London, Poole, the Stort Valley, Birmingham, Oxford, Macclesfield, Central Sheffield, South Sheffield, Leicester, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Norwich, Leamington Spa, Belfast, Reading and Linlithgow.
