That this House welcomes the Global Campaign for Education's Send my Sister to School campaign and its objective of holding world leaders to the 2015 deadline for ensuring that all children in the world have access to primary education; notes that the campaign estimates that 67 million children, the majority of whom are girls, are still missing out on school and that if current trends continue there may even be more children out of school by 2015 than there are now; further notes that this would represent a major obstacle to reducing poverty, improving general health, halting the spread of HIV and AIDS and enabling people to play a full part in their communities and nations; commends the local action that thousands of schools across the UK have taken to support the campaign; and urges the Government to work with its counterparts bilaterally and multilaterally to ensure that enough resources are committed to this vital issue to meet the 2015 deadline, including by continuing its support to the Global Partnership for Education and encouraging other donors to increase their contributions at the replenishment to be held in November 2011.
