What is the Global Partnership for Education?

The Global Partnership for Education (GPE) is a multi-stakeholder partnership and funding platform that aims to strengthen education systems in developing countries in order to dramatically increase the number of children who are in school and learning.

It works with 60+ developing countries to ensure that every child receives a quality basic education, prioritizing the poorest, the most vulnerable, and those living in fragile and conflict-affected countries. The Global Partnership mobilizes financing for education and supports developing countries to build effective education systems founded on evidence-based planning and policies.

Established in 2002 as the Education For All Fast Track Initiative, the Global Partnership has evolved into an independently governed partnership of governments, civil society, multilateral organizations, and the private sector.
