Education Beats Poverty.
In 2012 1GOAL will be at the African Cup of Nations.
In 2000, almost all world governments came together to create the UN Millennium Development and Education For All Goals, which aimed to secure a healthier world, free from disease and poverty. These include a pledge to end poverty through making sure every child can receive education by 2015. They promised to make sure there was enough money and that the policies were in place to make it a reality.
Since then an extra 40 million children are now going to school, but more is still needed to make sure those promises are met and education is provided for the remaining 72 million out-of-school children worldwide by 2015.
See the ‘boxes’ section for more information on the 1GOAL: Education for All campaign.
1GOAL: Education for All is a campaign seizing the power of football to ensure that education for all is a lasting impact of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Raising our voices all over the world, together, we can make education a reality for the 69 million out-of-school boys and girls by 2015.
