The event was co-chaired by Bambos Charalambous MP and Vicky Ford MP chairs of the APPG on Global Education. Panellists included UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Muzoon, Helen Grant MP Special Envoy for Girls’ Education and Jane Mann from the Cambridge Partnership for Education.  

Huge congratulations to Campaign Champions Emily and Elise from Upton High, who delivered their speech with confidence outlining important reasons why the UK government should invest in education in emergencies. 

schooling does not purely teach children to read and write, it equips them with the tools needed to overcome challenges they may face. Education really is the key to unlocking potential pathways and opportunities in life.

Emily and Elise also presented a letter signed by over 100 young people in their local area, which highlighted the significance of youth engagement in the advocacy around #LetMyFriendsLearn.
