Global summit seeks $3.5bn education pledges
July 3, 2014
An international gathering of political leaders, aid organisations and United Nations representatives aims to raise $3.5bn (£2.1bn) to support education in developing countries.
Following recent figures published by Unesco showing 58 million children without schools, with little improvement since 2007, the Global Partnership for Education is holding a summit in Brussels, where governments will pledge funding. In the previous funding round, the UK was the single biggest donor government.
