The Global Campaign for Education (GCE) is a civil society movement that aims to end the global education crisis. Education is a basic human right. Our mission is to make sure that governments act now to deliver the right of everyone to a free, quality.
GCE was established in 1999 and delivered a united civil society voice during the World Education Forum in Dakar in 2000, influencing the six Education for All goals. Since then GCE has continued to grow and some important progress has been made, including 40 million more children in school. However, far more still needs to be done to realise the right to quality education for all. Close to a billion people right now are being denied the education that would change their lives. GCE campaigns throughout the year, mobilising pressure from all sectors and holding governments and international institutions to account.
