#UpForSchool Campaign: Become the WIP Champion for Education

WIP is a lead partner in the global campaign #UpForSchool, a call to action to demonstrate the public support for universal primary education. This petition aims to push child rights higher up the international agenda and to drive changes in national legislations, in order to meet the provisions of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

All the signatures collected by female Parliamentarians will be handed over to the United Nations General Assembly, next September 2015.
