Support education for all
Worldwide, 77 million children lack access to even basic education. Many children, particularly girls, are kept from school due to uniform or text book expenses or the loss of their contribution to family income. Poor countries also lack the funds to train and retain qualified teachers, provide teaching materials, and build an adequate number of schools.
Representatives Nita Lowey (D-NY) and Spencer Bachus (R-AL), Senators Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and Gordon Smith (R-OR) have stepped up and introduced the Education for All Act to give tens of millions of children the education that will lift them out of poverty.
Education is a tool to transform the world, one student at a time. Education raises incomes, reduces infant mortality, slows the spread of HIV-AIDS, and saves lives. This is an investment that pays rich dividends.
Will you write a letter to your member of Congress asking them to support the Education for All Act?
