1.2 Million People in Bangladesh are #UpForSchool!
Up for School or #upforschool campaign
Last week the Bangladeshi NGO BRAC announced it has collected over 1.2 million signatures to the #UpForSchool petition.
BRAC, which works on reducing poverty in Africa and Asia, utilised its network of schools in Bangladesh to gain a vast amount of signatures calling on world leaders to deliver their promise of a quality education for each and every child.
Sir Fazle Hasan Abed, BRAC’s founder and chairperson, told A World at School that “BRAC is proud to be associated with the #UpForSchool campaign. I hope the world leaders will hear the voices of our youth and ensure that education remains the priority agenda for years to come.”
Their voices must not go unheard. In Bangladesh alone, 1.84 million children are out of school. Sign the #UpForSchool petition and add your voice today.
#UpForSchool is a campaign of A World at School and initiative of Theirworld. For more information on how to get involved in the #UpForSchool campaign click here.
