It is Global Action Week—a week used to highlight all that is being done for the right to education and what is being done to protect that right to education around the world. It is also a great time to jump in and get involved. Jump in to help the 57 million children out of school, jump in to help the 1 in the 3 girls that will be married before the age of 18 in the developing world instead of in school and most pressing jump in for the schoolgirls of Nigeria who need a world community to stand with them, their families and their community.
