In a call to action made live on Theirworld, Shakira Mebarak, a member of the Education Commission, is asking her millions of fans – and education advocates worldwide – to join her in calling upon leaders to take action and support a breakthrough International Finance Facility for Education.

In the statement, Shakira acknowledges “a plan big enough to deal with the problem” of troubling education trends that will spell disaster for a generation of young people if we fail to take action. Ahead of the G20 Summit, she urges us to take action and make sure the Facility is not only on the agenda but receives the necessary support so that every child may fulfill their potential.
