Making Education For All
a Reality 
 Promises to children should never be broken.
 
NELSON MANDELA, FORMER PRESIDENT OF SOUTH AFRICA 
PROMISES TO KEEP
Ten years ago, in the warm breeze of an African Spring, world leaders gathered todiscuss Education For All in Dakar, Senegal. A stark UN assessment revealed a brewingcrisis in education provision, with more children out of school at the end of the 90s thanat the start. In response, UN agencies and campaigners joined together to strike a newdeal that went well beyond the warm words of the past. They pledged that all childrenshould have a good quality education, that girls would have the same chance as boysand that the number of adults unable to read or write would be halved. Crucially, the richand poor world entered into a pact – a global contract – with shared responsibilities onboth sides, to guarantee that good policies for education would be funded
“We afrm that no country seriously committed to education for all will  be thwarted in their achievement of this goal by a lack of resources.” 
EDUCATION FOR ALL: MEETING OUR COLLECTIVE COMMITMENTS, DAKAR FRAMEWORK FOR ACTION, WORLD EDUCATION FORUM, APRIL 2000
Later that same year, both the G8 and the UN Millennium Summit adopted the samegoals. At every major development event since then, the centrality of education in ending
poverty and achieving other development goals has been strongly afrmed, and repeated
commitments have been made to ensuring universal primary education and genderequality.O
ne decade after it was rst made, the promise from world leaders to give every boy and
girl the best chance to realise their potential through the power of education has never
been more relevant. Yet it remains an unfullled promise. 72 million children, the majority
of them girls, do not go to primary school. This is more than all the children in school
in Europe and North America. Over half the out-of-school children are in Africa. 759
million adults, the majority of them women, cannot read or write. The UN estimates that
business as usual would leave 56 million children still waiting at the school gates by theend of 2010.
This situation is due, in large part, to the fact that the rich countries have not kept theirside of the bargain. Developing countries, especially across Africa, have fought hard tomake education free and increase domestic spending. Although many need to go furtherand faster, their effort has played the largest part in making progress over recent years.In contrast, few donors have increased aid to basic education to levels needed to make abreakthrough. Scandalously, most of the world’s richest nations – the G8 – have failed topay their fair share of the funding needed.
1GOAL seeks to put right this wrong. Backed by FIFA and the football world, 1GOALwill ensure that the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa leaves the legacy of EducationFor All. In a stunning campaign around the tournament, 1GOAL will bring footballers,supporters, and campaigners together to call for world leaders to fulll the promise that
every child will have the chance to live in the light and hope that education brings. Never
before has a sporting event tried to deliver a legacy of social change. 1GOAL’s campaignwith the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa is a unique opportunity to ensure the spiritof sporting endeavor is harnessed to achieve real and lasting benets for the world.2.
