Message from the Executive Director
#UpForSchool, #EducationCountdown Mobilize Efforts for Children's Education Worldwide

Despite efforts to improve access to quality education in countries across the globe, today 58 million children worldwide do not go to school.


A World at School and Global Business Coalition for Education are hoping to change that. The organizations joined together to launch a new global campaign to bring children's education to the forefront of the social agenda--challenging governments, NGOs, and others to get all children into school and learning by the end of 2015.


Thank you for your support -
together we can make a better life for children in tobacco-growing communities!
