EDUCATION FIRST: AN IMPORTANT UNITED NATIONS INITIATIVE

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world,” says Nelson Mandela, Former President of South Africa and 1993 Nobel Peace Prize Winner. In September 2012, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon launched the Education First initiative. Partner companies and private foundations have made new pledges mobilizing over $1.5 billion for Education First’s priority areas — to get all children into school, to make sure they learn, and that what they learn is relevant for addressing today’s global challenges.
