Japan increases contribution to the Global Partnership for Education
Chad has been at the forefront of several humanitarian crises and has been impacted by both the Sahel food crisis and a financial crisis following the decrease in oil prices.
“Japan is an important partner of the Global Partnership for Education, and we are grateful for this additional funding in support of children’s education in the Lake Chad region,” said Alice Albright, GPE’s Chief Executive Officer. “We look forward to further strengthening our collaboration with the Japanese government.”
Japan joined GPE in 2008 and has since contributed a total of US$24.8 million. It is represented on the GPE Board of Directors and shares a seat with Australia, Korea and the United States.
