GPE helps governments develop and finance the implementation of strong education sector plans that improve equity and learning
GPE leverages the financial support and expertise of donors, developing country governments, international organizations, civil society, teacher organizations, the private sector and philanthropy to ensure the delivery of results.
Worldwide, it is estimated that an additional US$39 billion is needed to fill the annual external financing gap and provide quality pre-primary, primary and secondary education to all children by 2030. It costs only US$1.25 per day to educate a child in a developing country.
GPE 2020 aims to mobilize more and better financing for education by attracting additional donors to education as well as seeking increased financing from traditional donors. Through innovative ways of mobilizing funding, including new financial instruments, GPE is determined to unlock further investments.
GPE adheres to high standards of transparency in regards to its governance, policies, financing, and program funding. We regularly publish data compliant with the standards of the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) registry.
