1GOAL: Education for All
1GOAL is a campaign seizing the power of football to get all children into school and learning. Run by the Global Campaign for Education (GCE), 1GOAL mobilised millions to help ensure Education For All is a lasting legacy of the FIFA World Cup. We continue to call on world leaders to make education a reality for 69 million children by 2015.
