World Bank: Send 1 million kids to school

Add your number if you’d like to hear from us by phone or text.
Your message will be delivered to the ministers representing the US, Italy, Spain, The Netherlands and Australia at this week's World Bank meeting.

Here are some points you can use to write your message:
  • I am writing to ask you to support South Sudan's strategic education plan at this week's World Bank meeting. South Sudan’s future as a nation depends on the next generation getting a proper education.
  • The World Bank and the Global Partnership for Education should authorize $180 million in co-funding for this plan. Anything less than that will not be enough to make the plan a reality.
  • As a key leader at the World Bank meeting, you can make sure the plan gets funded by simply asking President Zoellick and the leadership of the Global Partnership for Education to make South Sudan's plan a funding priority.
  • We can’t let another generation of Sudanese children suffer. The World Bank knows that education has greatest impact on eliminating poverty.

The world’s newest country, South Sudan, has created an exciting new plan to put 1 million of their children in school -- but it's being held hostage by bureaucrats. If we act now, we can save it.

South Sudan is in economic and political crisis -- and its future depends on the next generation getting a proper education. The government has written an education plan and asked the World Bank and its partners for funding -- but bureaucrats are weighing the process down, asking for extra data and tweaking small elements. It could be years before it finally gets approved -- if we raise the proposal's profile with World Bank President Zoellick and leaders of the Bank's key donor countries, we can push it through!

World Bank leaders are meeting in 2 days. The ministers of key countries are boarding their planes right now -- let's flood them with messages and get 1 million kids into school! Send a message to the ministers now, then click through to the next page to call President Zoellick's office.
