Transcript of 57 million children around the

Send my friend to school
57 million children around the
world are out of school

3 million more girls than boys are missing out on primary school

15 million children are working instead of learning

500,000 UK school children are campaigning to end this

They are part of a global movement with millions of young campaigners

Children from two Welsh schools visited Westminster and asked, ‘Mr Cameron, will you Send My Friend to School?’

Our young campaign ambassadors represented the UK at the UN’s first ever youth takeover on 12th July 2013

Children have told us about the qualities and skills that make an ideal teacher.

They believe that every child deserves a great teacher.

Pupils at Rhodes Avenue Primary met DfID Minister Lynne Featherstone MP

50 + MPs went back to school to meet young campaigners in person.


99% of MPs received Send My Friend messages from their constituents!

Nearly 5,000 UK schools have taken part

We are having an impact! The UK government is now giving more than any other country in aid to education.

Sadly, the global picture doesn’t look so good - many countries are giving less than last year and
education aid has fallen by £200 million globally.

£17 billion a year is needed to get every child in school - about four times as much aid as is currently being given.

So we can’t stop campaigning yet…

In the words of Malala Yousafzai:

“I speak, not for myself, but for those without voice to be heard…

“Let us pick up our books and pens. They are our most powerful weapons.

“One child, one teacher, one pen and one book can change
the world. Education is the only solution. Education first.”


Thank you everyone for being part of Send My Friend to School!
