Education Above All (EAA), is a global initiative founded by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser. EAA's aim is to build a global movement that contributes to human, social and economic development through quality education. Currently there are 58 million children worldwide who are out of school. They are denied their basic right for primary education due to a number of challenges and barriers such as living in areas affected by poverty, conflict, natural disasters, gender discrimination, among others.
EAA have launched a social media campaign on an online crowd-sourcing platform called Thunderclap. Thunderclap allows anyone to support a topic/issue/cause by donating a Facebook status or a tweet. EAA is collecting the "social donations" of people who receive the link to their page. On November 13th @ 4:30 PM Doha time, all the people who joined the cause will donate the status here below all at the same time! This collective message will reach thousands of people in their networks.
We are inviting you to visit EAA's Thunderclap page, and to add your support through Facebook and/or Twitter, so you can help support the right for primary education for out of school children. Once you have added your support, Thunderclap will give you an option to share your social donation with a message on your Facebook/Twitter profiles. Please do share this so we can get the word out and get it viral over social media. You can access EAA's Thunderclap page here.
P.S: Thunderclap will request access to connect to your Facebook/Twitter account so it can have access to your network, and will only post the message above on your behalf. You can learn more about Thunderclap here. Don't worry, it is safe.
