Educate a Child, Transform the World
The National Initiative
The 221st General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) launched a churchwide initiative calling on Presbyterians to work with partners in the U.S. and worldwide to improve the quality of education for 1 million children by 2020. This initiative builds on our strong Reformed heritage and Presbyterian history of both educational mission and advocacy and support for access to public education. On the national level, this initiative will center around 2 major foci:
- strengthening early childhood education
- reducing the dropout rate of adolescents
Join us as we identify and share best practices and resources for local educational mission; support public education policy at the national, state, and local levels; train and equip (new/a new generation of) leaders for child advocacy; and connect with others in our common call to walk alongside our children as they live into their identities as children of God.

A question: What is the PCUSA mission agency doing for the thousands of illegal child immigrants being held in dentention on our southern borders? Is there something we can do?
Just wanted to say thank you to whoever made this "pin"able!!
Una, we are definitely continuing this work- in fact, we are expanding it on an ongoing basis through the work of the Human Trafficking Roundtable.
Martha, I don't see any mention of the work that G.A. and PHEWA are doing to end child trafficking and exploitaiton of children. I hope we are continuing to work on both of these issues. Una . is
