What do you want to be when you grow up?
It might be an astronaut, a professional footballer, a lawyer, doctor, teacher or any number of things. One thing is for certain; whatever you want to be, you need an education to help you get there.
All of us are lucky enough to have been given the chance to be what we want to be, because all of us have the chance to go to school. Sadly, this is not the same all over the world.
Did you know that are currently 75 million children in the world who do not go to school? That means 75Â million children who might not get the chance to follow their dreams. 75 million children who are trapped in poverty, because they might not have the chance to improve their lives.
So what can we do about it?
On the 7th July, there will be a meeting of world leaders, and the 1GOAL organisation wants to send them a simple and clear message – Education For Everyone.
You can help too. Nearly 10 million people have joined so far. You can send your message to world leaders here:
Why not see who else is supporting the 1GOAL initiative too? There are lots of videos on their site.
