The Global Partnership for Education is the only global fund solely dedicated to education in developing countries.

The Global Partnership for Education (GPE) is a multi-stakeholder partnership and funding platform that galvanizes global and national support for education in developing countries, focusing on the poorest and most vulnerable children and youth. It is the only global partnership entirely focused on education in developing countries. Almost 50% of GPE’s funding supports countries affected by fragility and conflict.

Established in 2002, GPE brings together 60+ developing country governments, 20+ donors, international organizations, civil society, teacher organizations, the private sector and philanthropy to improve the lives of children and youth through quality education for all. Since 2003, GPE has allocated more than US$4.6 billion to partner developing countries to strengthen education systems — improving access to schools, the quality of education, equity in learning and data collection.

GPE 2020, the partnership’s strategic plan for 2016–2020, aligns GPE’s vision and mission to the Global Goal for education. Progress is tracked and measured in a comprehensive results framework, holding all GPE partners to account.

What we do

We build stronger education systems

GPE supports developing country governments to develop good quality education sector plans. Governments take the lead in planning and are accountable for delivery; GPE enables needs analysis, works to strengthen technical capacity, and brings in the talent and resources of all partners.

We support countries with the greatest needs, and the children and youth most often left behind

GPE supports nations with high numbers of out-of-school children and weak school completion rates. Also, GPE focuses on reaching the children that are most marginalized and vulnerable including girls, children with disabilities, and those who live in countries that are characterized by extreme poverty and/or conflict. Almost 50% of GPE funds go to countries affected by fragility and conflict.

We mobilize more financing for education

GPE mobilizes financing from public and private sources around the world and encourages developing country partners to provide sufficient domestic financing for basic education. In the last 10 years, GPE directly invested more than US$4.7 billion in education in developing countries. Also, GPE grants strengthen education systems to improve equity, quality, and learning, with 30% paid only if specific targets are reached.

We bridge the gap between crisis and development

When countries become unstable, GPE can adapt its approach and allow more flexibility and a faster response to address urgent needs. We aim to have education services restored as quickly as possible while laying the foundation to meet longer-term educational goals.

We share knowledge of what works

GPE enables developing countries to address common education challenges through learning from each other, strengthening technical capacity, and accessing the best technical expertise.
