To ask that the UK government increase their support to international aid for education.
Why is this important?
As stated in article 28 of the UNCRC - every child has the right to a free primary education and wealthy countries should help poorer countries achieve this.
In our world today there are around 60 million primary aged children not in school. Goal 2 of the UN's millennium development goals looked at achieving universal primary education by 2015. This is not a reality for a variety of reasons such as war, poverty and gender inequalities.
The primary 7 children of St. Eunan's Primary School, Clydebank have established a campaign called 'Education: Every Child, Everywhere which demands wealthy governments around the world to help poorer countries ensure that every child, everywhere goes to school.
