Global Action Week: Youth and Adult Literacy and Lifelong Learning

Did you ever consider that a whopping 75 million children are still out of school? Or that over 770 million people do not have the skills to read and write? Or that another 18 million teachers need to be recruited between now and 2015 to match the rising demand for education? n April 2000 at the World Education Forum in Dakar, Senegal, 185 governments committed to provide Education for All (EFA) by the year 2015. Global Action Week is one of several events organised by the Global Campaign for Education (GCE) to hold governments to account on these commitments. During this week, which generally falls at the end of April, millions of people around the world organise activities in their own country to remind their governments to fulfil the promise made in Dakar.
