We need you to help us spread the message and create a brighter future for every child.
Global Youth Ambassadors, young people, NGOs, members of civil society, teachers, faith-based organisations, media and leading businesses, are all part of the A World at School movement to drive action on global education. From signing a petition calling for action, to speaking as an advocate for our causes at the UN General Assembly, the movement has grown to include the support of over 11 million people.
These organisations and groups join by signing a common statement to highlight that education is a fundamental right of every child and the key to every individual’s well-being
Faith-based organisations from all over the world have convened to campaign for all children to receive a quality education as a fundamental right.
They bring together the goodwill and commitment of faith-based organisations to raise awareness and demand urgent action to benefit children missing out on education.
We are grateful to all the young people who support us. Whether they are a Global Youth Ambassador, a campaigner, an advocate, or a fundraiser, we support and encourage every young person as they stand up for children's rights all over the world.
A young girl presents a petition to a global leader. A new parent works with scientists to help with medical research into care for newborns. A refugee gets a place at a school who has partnered with an NGO. Our global network of supporters work side by side to bring about change in their own communities and all over the world.
Our supporters include young people, parents, teachers and any other individual who wants to get involved and take action.
People take part in our work in so many individual ways; by taking big actions like carrying messages to global leaders, or simply by taking a moment to sign a petition.
Over the years, we our work has been endorsed by high profile individuals. In many cases, they've also taken part in projects, promoted our causes on social media, or acted as ambassadors and helped us spread the message of our campaigns. Here are some of the highlights.
#TBT to my school photo at age 8. Did you know that educating girls for 6 years or more consistently improves their prenatal care, postnatal care & childbirth survival rates later in life? That’s why I’m standing #UpForSchool – because there are currently 31 million girls around the world denied the right to go to school. Join me to empower the next generation of girls & women by signing the upforschool.org petition. #theirworld
