London, 29 Jul (ONA) --- A global education summit in London is aiming to raise $5bn (£3.6bn) to get 88 million more children into school in some of the world's poorest countries.

The United Kingdom (UK) has promised £430m to the Global Partnership for Education, which gathers aid from donor countries to support education in 92 countries.

 

The event, hosted by the UK and Kenya, will provide aid for the next five years, supporting 175 million children.

During the day, world leaders will make funding pledges.

 

The aim of the Global Partnership for Education is to boost education in low-income countries, which it argues will improve the health, prosperity and opportunities for some of the world's most deprived communities, the BBC news reported.
