Send My Friend to School 2017

Take part in the 2017 campaign
The message from Malawi – Send my Friend to School.

Take part in Send My Friend to School to help ensure that every child receives a quality education.

263 million children around the world are still missing out on school. World leaders have promised a quality primary and secondary education to every child in the world. But a key piece of the puzzle is not in place - the money to pay for this education. 2017 is the year to change this education funding crisis.
