United Nations Global Education First Initiative’s Youth Advocacy Group

Jenny Perlman Robinson

In September 2012 United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon launched a five-year education campaign, the Global Education First Initiative, to put every child in school, improve the quality of learning and foster global citizenship. To advise and support the implementation of the initiative, the Global Education First Initiative convened a Youth Advocacy Group of 15 young leaders from around the world. I sat down with two of the Youth Advocacy Group members, Joseph Munyambanza of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Anna Susarenco of Moldova, to discuss the group’s mandate and their personal commitment to education for all.
