In July, the G20 will meet in Hamburg, and Rihanna and Global Citizen need your help in the coming month to make sure education is at the top of that list.
Last year, Rihanna asked Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to step up in support of education. She then tweeted with former French President Francois Hollande, a public discussion where he ultimately declared ‘education is my number one priority’.
And now she’s at it again, but this time she has not one or two, but 20 of the world’s most powerful leaders in her sights.
As GPE’s Global Ambassador, Rihanna is standing with the Global Partnership for Education and its Chair, Julia Gillard, to call for an historic step-change in financing for education, and on the G20 and other donors to step up and #FundEducation at GPE’s next replenishment so it can raise $3.1B between 2018 and 2020.
That’s $3.1B that can build new classrooms, fund books, teachers, water sources, fees, uniforms and, most importantly, a higher quality of education for over 870 million kids.

Earlier this year Global Citizen had the opportunity to partner with Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation and the Global Partnership for Education to travel to Malawi for a learning trip. It was an opportunity to spend time with key educators, government officials, mentors, and students who are working collaboratively to build a better future for the next generation of Malawians.
