The power of education is clear – brighter futures, healthier communities, and increased economic growth for individuals and countries. This is why we urge the United States Congress to allocate for Fiscal Year 2022 at least $1.1 billion for International Basic Education, including at least $150 million for the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) and at least $50 million for Education Cannot Wait (ECW), both of which complement U.S. bilateral education efforts.
