Every child has a dream.
But there is a global education crisis creating a vast divide between children who will have the chance to realise their dreams - and those who who will be left without an education, skills or opportunity.
There is an idea big enough to make the impossible possible.
The new International Finance Facility for Education could generate more than $10 billion in funding for education - annually.
Now, let’s make their dreams that are currently impossible, possible.
The campaign goes global - and to another level - with over 1.5 million people now having signed petitions in support of IFFEd and the game-changing role it can play in making SDG4 possible.
G20 leaders respond to the burgeoning support for IFFEd, committing to action on the idea over the next year in their official Communique.
Shakira joins the campaign - along with 145,000 others - who together bring a powerful message in support of IFFEd to the G20 in Hamburg.
Young people from around the world back the call for IFFEd to help address global education financing in the Y20 - the official youth forum of the G20.
Fourteen African countries participate in the "Pioneer Countries" initiative, welcoming the proposal of IFFed and its transformative potential.
The UK House of Commons International Development Committee - a cross-party group of British MPs - recommends that the UK increases aid to education & supports IFFEd to help meet SDG4.
A group of 30 major civil society and non-governmental organisations call for IFFEd to be established and SDG4 to be fully financed in a Joint Call to Action.
The International Commission on Financing Global Education Opportunity publishes its landmark report on how the promise of SDG4 can be financed.
More than 150 world leaders adopt the Sustainable Development Goals, or #GlobalGoals, at the United Nations.
This includes SDG4: "Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all".
