15 million in one day?

The plan was to have 15 million children across the world take part in the ‘1GOAL – education for all’ campaign, supported by FIFA and the World Cup to highlight the need for a free education for all children.

It was launched yesterday with football legend John Aloisi (pictured) and students from a Melbourne kicking off the global initiative with a Lesson for All world record attempt.

Around 100 Year seven students took part in Melbourne along with hundreds of others in five Australian states.

Australian students  were the first to take part in the campaign’s lesson, learning about why some children are denied an education and the impact that has on their lives.

Schools in Asia, Europe, Africa and North America will follow throughout the day.

The event was part of a global world record attempt of 15 million children in over 100 countries who will all take the lesson in support of 1GOAL, learning about how education can break the cycle of poverty.

1GOAL is backed by some of the world’s biggest names in sport including Tim Cahill  and the Australian Federal Government through its aid agency AusAID.
