In July 2012, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon appointed former United Kingdom Prime Minister Gordon Brown to be the UN Special Envoy for Global Education, to help galvanize support for Mr. Ban’s Global Education First Initiative (GEFI), which aims to achieve the goal of safe, quality education for every girl and boy by 2015, the deadline of the UN’s Millennium Development Goals. Advances have been made since the target were set in 2000, but some 60 million children are still out of school, 32 million of them girls and 28 million of them in conflict zones.
