ABOUT 1GOAL: EDUCATION FOR ALL
1GOAL is quite simply a global team that will voice our wishes to world leaders to keep their promise of giving everyone an education by 2015.
1GOAL is an ambitious and important campaign that will change the lives of 72 million children living in poverty by helping to give them an education. 1GOAL is campaigning in over 200 countries from now until the FIFA World Cup final in South Africa in 2010.
Why Education for All?
Today, 72 million children around the world are denied the opportunity to go to school. Education is the best tool we have for tackling poverty, and it is the one investment that ultimately pays for itself: When a child gets educated, they will eventually earn more and be better able to support their family.
The 2010 FIFA World Cup is the world’s biggest single sporting event, with over half the world watching, a time when millions come together to share the passion of football. With all eyes turning to South Africa for 2010, this is a moment for all of us to shine and give education to children in the world’s poorest countries. Global football stars, the football world and its governing body, FIFA, are coming together with charities to support 1GOAL.
Let’s leave a legacy of education. We don’t want your money – we just want you on our team. Write Your Name for those who can’t.
