Since its inception in 2002, the Global Partnership has been devoted to getting all children everywhere into school for a good education. It has achieved impressive results since 2002, including putting an additional 19 million children in school, training 413,000 teachers, constructing more than 37,000 classrooms, providing 218 million textbooks, and achieving higher school completion rates for boys and girls.
This strategic plan builds on those achievements and sets out the long-term vision, mission, strategic goals, and core strategies of the Global Partnership. Our vision is a good quality education for all children, everywhere, so they fulfill their potential and contribute to their societies, and our mission is to galvanize and coordinate a global effort to deliver a good quality education to all girls and boys, prioritizing the poorest and most vulnerable.
The Global Partnership has four strategic goals (see boxes in the graphic presentation) to achieve this vision, goals that focus on the key building blocks of access, quality, equity, and strong national education systems.
Following from those four goals, the Global Partnership has set five targeted objectives for the period of 2012-2015 to address the major and immediate barriers to achieving our longer-term goals. Our objectives articulate what the Global Partnership will do over the next three years as we focus on fragile states, girls’ education, early-grade learning (particularly reading and numeracy), resources for education, and improvement of teaching. Progress will be tracked and assessed against the strategic goals and five objectives. The indicators included in the plan to track our goals and objectives are to be used as markers to guide policy making and decision making, as well as for advocacy.
This plan is a living document and will be regularly reviewed for relevance and practicality, including the indicators contained herein.
