#5for5: The smartest investment

The first five years of a child’s life are the most critical to their future development. And yet, Pre-primary is one of the most neglected areas of education aid, receiving less than 1% globally. This severe lack of investment is putting more than 200 million children at a disadvantage, before they even start school.

This year is a crucial opportunity for raising the game in aid funding to the youngest children. So we need your help to tell those in charge of major organisations about the importance of pre-primary education funding.

We’re asking our campaigners to call on the donors to ask them to pay their fair share. With just a few clicks, you can help make sure the issue is given the focus it deserves, and that donors put their money where their mouth is. We know you don’t have much time, so to make it really easy, we’ve prepared a message for you to send. 

Please add your voice, and ensure 200 million children under five get the start in their schooling life that they deserve.
