Send My Friend to School 2015, launched today and run by the Global Campaign for Education, is asking UK students to make 3D figures to send to their MPs with messages telling world leaders that every child should have the right to an education.
The campaign states: “In 2000, world leaders promised universal primary education by 2015, but 58 million children are still out of school and it is girls, children in conflict areas and children with disabilities that are missing out most. At the current rate of progress it will be 2086 before every child worldwide gets an education.”
