Thanks to everyone who took this e-action and sent a message to DFID Ministers, Lynne Featherstone and Justine Greening.
Thanks to your campaigning the UK government have increased their previous contribution to the Global Partnership for Education. They have said that they will give up to £300 million over the next four years, which we’re really pleased to hear.
Overall £1.2 billion was raised from aid donor countries and a further £15.5 billion in pledges came from 27 developing countries who said they will make big increases in their education budgets and funding over the next few years.
