Jagger signed up to the 1GOAL campaign after talking to children participating in 1GOAL’s Education at your Feet project in Johannesburg – and discovering that 72 million children around the world are denied an education.

“I am honored to support 1GOAL. I love football and to raise awareness that 72 million children are denied an education through this global sport is truly amazing,” said Sir Mick. “I want to urge you – even if you are not a football fan like me – to sign up to this campaign and help leave a legacy from this World Cup – to get every child into school.”
