“’Education can transform the lives of children in conflict, giving them the tools to create a better future for their families and their nations,’ explained Angie, who co-chairs the Education Partnership with Gene Sperling, Director of the Center for Universal Education at the Council on Foreign Relations. ‘This Partnership is putting words into action,’ Angie explained, ‘and demonstrating that even in the most difficult circumstances, every child can and should have a chance to learn.'”

The partnership will include commitments to improve educational opportunities for 1+ million conflict-affected children, assistance to 200,000 Iraqi refugee children, and aid to more than 300,000 children affected by the Darfur genocide. It will also have the backing of 19 World Renowned Organizations and Individuals in 15 Countries.
