#UpForSchool #UpForLearning - Join the Irish Campaign

Join the Irish campaign to put pressure on world leaders to get 58 million children worldwide, who are not currently at school, into school. To have the right to an education, the right to learn. You can have your voice heard by signing this petition. We are stronger together. By acting together we can make a difference to children's lives. Let's do it!

Why is this important?


Every child has the right to go to school, without danger or discrimination.

Help create a message no government, politician or leader can ignore and demand that every child can go to school safely. Nothing changes without pressure.

Sign the #UpForSchool Petition. Act Now.


"We, the world's youth, teachers, parents and global citizens appeal to our governments to keep their promise, made at the United Nations in 2000, to ensure all out-of-school children gain their right to education before the end of 2015.

We are standing up to bring an end to the barriers preventing girls and boys from going to school, including forced work and early marriage, conflict and attacks on schools, exploitation and discrimination. All children deserve the opportunity to learn and achieve their potential.

We are #UpForSchool."
