GAA Calls on President Obama to Make Good on His Education Promise to the World’s Children
One year ago, on September 28, 2008, then-Candidate Barack Obama used the world stage provided by the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative to promise that, if elected, he would work to create a Global Fund for Education. Mr. Obama said: "That's why the third commitment I'll make is working to erase the global primary education gap by 2015. Every child—every boy, and every girl—should have the ability to go to school. To ensure that our nation does its part to meet that goal, we need to establish a two billion dollar Global Education Fund."

President Obama’s FY10 Budget Breaks His Campaign Promises on Global Issues
President Obama's $3.55 trillion budget released today breaks four of his campaign promises and creates a total shortfall of $4.6 billion in U.S. support for global AIDS and education programs. The proposed FY10 funding ignores the President's campaign promises by including only $5 billion for PEPFAR, the successful U.S. bilateral AIDS program ($1.5 billion shortfall); $900 million for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria ($1.8 billion shortfall); and $700 million for global basic education ($1.3 billion shortfall).
