About Us

The Global Partnership for Education is a shared commitment to ending the world’s learning crisis. It is the only global partnership and fund dedicated entirely to helping children in lower-income countries get a quality education, so they can unlock their potential and contribute to building a better world. 

GPE mobilizes partnerships and investments to help 76 partner countries transform their education systems and deliver quality learning to more girls and boys, especially those who are marginalized by poverty, gender, disability or displacement.  

GPE recently launched a $5+ billion financing campaign, “Raise Your Hand”, to help transform education systems in up to 90 countries and territories, which are home to more than 1 billion children. Over the next five years, this funding will help ensure that 175 million children can learn, and enroll 88 million more children in school. In the longer term, this investment could add $164 billion to economies in the developing world, lift 18 million people out of poverty, and protect two million girls from early marriage. 

The GPE Secretariat is hosted by the World Bank and has offices in Washington DC, Paris and Brussels.
