Tous les enfants –toutes les filles et tous les garçons – doivent avoir accès à l’éducation.
Les enfants naissent avides de savoir. Bien trop souvent, cependant, ils n’ont pas accès à l’éducation. Aujourd’hui, plus de 110 millions d’enfants en âge d’aller à l’école partout dans le monde, particulièrement des filles, ne sont pas scolarisés, et des millions d’autres ne reçoivent qu’une éducation de mauvaise qualité.

Mais une éducation basique de qualité est l’un des droits fondamentaux de tout enfant. La discrimination sexuelle doit être éliminée et les écoles doivent devenir des lieux où tous les enfants se sentiront en sécurité. Les écoles ne peuvent pas être si éloignées de leur domicile qu’ils ne peuvent pas y accéder. L’éducation d’un enfant n’est pas seulement son droit. C’est également sa responsabilité, l’une des responsabilités les plus importante qu’un enfant puisse ou veuille endosser.

Campagne mondiale pour l’éducation

La campagne mondiale pour l’éducation est une campagne planétaire dont le but premier est d’amener la question de l’éducation sur le devant de la scène. Cette campagne est organisée chaque année depuis 2001. La partie la plus intensive de la CME est la Semaine Mondiale d’Action. Des coalitions nationales pour l’éducations se préparent, parfois 9 mois à l’avance, pour s’assurer que la semaine d’action aura un impact maximum sur les personnes en charge de la prise de décision. Depuis sa création, la participation à la Semaine Mondiale d’Action a augmenté de manière exponentielle, passant de 2 millions de personnes en 2003 à plus de 14 millions en 2009. La Sem...

Campagne mondiale pour l’éducation

L’éducation sociale et financière des enfants est une campagne centrale menée par l’ONG néerlandaise Aflatoun. En mars 2010, nous fêterons le second anniversaire du lancement de la campagne mondiale d’Aflatoun pour apporter une éducation financière et sociale aux enfants partout dans le monde. Le concept de la campagne repose sur la conviction que les enfants sont des agents essentiels du changement économique et social. Permettre aux enfants d’effectuer ce changement et de briser le cercle de la pauvreté signifie aussi de leur faire prendre conscience de leurs droits et de leurs responsabilités, et de leur fournir les outils qui leur permettront d’exercer ces droits....

I World Conference on Early Childhood Care and Education

Heads and Deputy Heads of State, education ministers, experts and representatives from civil society from around the world will meet in Moscow from 27-29 September to examine ways of accelerating access to Early Childhood Care and Education. They will be attending the first World Conference on Early Childhood Care and Education: Building the Wealth of Nations, which is being organized by UNESCO, the Government of the Russian Federation and the City of Moscow. Early childhood is a critical period. Children are most vulnerable and most dependent then on relationships for survival, emotional security and cognitive development. Yet large proportions of the world’s children are d...

Join the Global Campaign on Education!

'Millions of parents, teachers and children around the world are calling on their governments to provide free, good quality, basic education for all the world's children. They are part of the Global Campaign for Education; we add our voice to their call. Nelson Mandela and Graca Machel, April 2002. Education is a basic human right and fundamental to the fight for human dignity and freedom. For 125 million children and 880 million adults, that right is violated everyday. What is the GCE? The Global Campaign for Education (GCE) promotes education as a basic human right, and mobilizes public pressure on governments and the international community to fulfill...

Quality education to end exclusion

The Global Action Week 2008 theme builds on the previous theme of the right to education, calling for an end to all forms of exclusion from quality education. Over 70 million children of school-going age are not in school and access and retention levels particularly for certain categories of people for example, girls and children with special needs, are still low. In Sub-Saharan Africa for example, fewer than 70 percent are in school. Partly as a consequence, over 800 million adults cannot read or write. Yet to ensure that Education For All is truly achieved, the challenge is not merely to guarantee universal access to education but equally to ensure that it is of good quality. Th...

Education Rights Now!

WARM WORDS, LITTLE ACTION FROM G8 SAYS GLOBAL CAMPAIGN FOR EDUCATIONThe Global Campaign for Education (GCE) has issued a guarded welcome to the constructive wording on education offered up in this year's G8 communiqué but is dismayed that yet again these promises aren't backed by enough real and specific funding commitments. Campaigners say the text of 'Growth and Responsibility in Africa' is a broadly positive reiteration of rich countries' responsibility to support Education For All (EFA). Of particular note is the affirmation of the Dakar pledge that 'no country seriously committed to 'Education for All' will be thwarted in their achievement of this goal by lack of res...

Top marks for the World's Biggest Lobby

In the biggest children's lobby the world has ever seen, in April 2004 over 100 countries rang with the sound of millions of children meeting their country's top leaders and simultaneously giving a very simple message - help get the 100 million kids missing an education into school. In the UK, for example, Hilary Benn, Secretary of State for International Development announced Britain's contribution of £12 million to the Fast- Track Initiative which will help developing countries provide education for the world's poorest children. Together, the millions of children and adults around the world involved in the Big Lobby helped make a real difference to their lives and futures....
