Rania Helps in launching Education for All Campaign
Queen Rania of Jordan helped launch the 1GOAL: Education for All campaign, along with football’s world governing body FIFA and footballers from across the globe, on Thursday. The campaign will try to ensure all children receive an education, the 1GOAL: Education for All is linked to next year’s World Cup in South Africa. 1GOAL has one purpose and that is to ensure that 75 million children out of school in Africa and the world’s poorest countries get access to classrooms, teachers and the future that education provides.
“I’m proud to support 1GOAL; it isn’t asking for money, it’s asking for your name, your commitment to fair play for future generations,” at the launch of the campaign at the Wembley Stadium, Queen Rania said. She went on saying that “When children are denied an education, society as a whole loses out. It’s the best investment you can make to help people lift themselves out of poverty, the one investment you can make that will never shrink in value.”Jordan
