#BringBackOurGirls Campaign

I am strongly committed to the global education movement. I am writing today to ask you to join the #BringBackOurGirls international campaign in support of the missing girls from Chibok, Nigeria.

In April 2014 the world was shocked by the abduction of more than 270 schoolgirls in northern Nigeria.

The kidnapping is one of an increasing number of violations of the right to education in Nigeria. Violent attacks against students and their families have become more common over recent months and hundreds of children have died or gone missing. Schools have been attacked.

In June 2014, thousands of people across the world mobilised in support of the Nigerian girls of Chibok, for safe schools and the right of every child to go to school.

Here in the European Union, we have a proud tradition of supporting the basic human rights that are denied across the world. Show your own support by taking action in support of global education. The 500-day countdown campaign is a drive to ensure that by the end of 2015 as many children as possible are in school and learning.

To be a part of this action, build a team and plan an event to stand in solidarity with the abducted northern Nigerian girls of Chibok and all those around the world who face similar struggles.

Bring education to the top of the agenda for decision-makers in your community.

Join the online conversation. Tweet why education is important to you. Spread the word. I’m counting on you to create an effective global movement.
