58 MILLION CHILDREN ARE NOT IN SCHOOL.

The #EducationCountdown Campaign, hosted by A World at School, brings together NGOs, civil society, teachers, youth, faith-based organizations, and the business community in a global movement to marshal the political will and financing needed to achieve Millennium Development Goal 2 of universal education. The campaign addresses key barriers to learning for all children and delivers results against collective milestones and targets.
