Far from just another campaign, EAC’s historic Zero OOSC initiative represents the credible means by which the most disadvantaged children in countries within an arm’s reach of Universal Primary Education (UPE) will embark upon a pathway to a better life! EAC is calling on government stakeholders in education to take up the mantle to Educate Every Child and realise UPE for the remaining OOSC within their borders. Zero OOSC is working with government and other partners in countries with small numbers of remaining OOSC to make real the promise of Universal Primary Education for every child.
