Planet Aid joined other international development organizations belonging to the Global Campaign for Education in signing a letter urging the U.S. Agency for International Development to attend the upcoming Financing Conference for the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) in Dakar, Senegal on February 2, 2018. Additionally, the organizations requested the United States provide $337.5 million over three years to support the 2018-2020 strategy for the GPE.

Quality education can help reduce poverty, increase gender equality, improve the environment, and reduce war and conflict. Equal access to quality education around the world is essential for building a sustainable and livable society.

The GPE is the only multilateral partnership dedicated to ensuring all children have access to a quality education by building strong, lasting educational systems. It is the only global entity that brings all partners, including international donors, the private sector, and community groups, together around a single national education plan.
