Our blog series on the G8's development goal accountability report continues with this look at education progress.
Progress in education has been rated as satisfactory. The main focus has been funding to the Global Partnership for Education (GPE), which provides funding and technical support to help low income countries implement sound education plans. However, as at least 250 million children cannot read or count, it is clear that the G8 has not been doing enough for education.

In 1993, Bill and Melinda Gates—then engaged—took a walk on a beach in Zanzibar, and made a bold decision on how they would make sure that their wealth from Microsoft went back into society. In a conversation with Chris Anderson, the couple talks about their work at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, as well as about their marriage, their children, their failures and the satisfaction of giving most of their wealth away.

In the first part of a week long series looking at this summer's G8 summit, we take a look at the Lough Erne Accountability Report, a document detailing the progress the G8 have made towards their goals in nine key areas for world development, with a focus on the poorest countries: aid and aid effectiveness, economic development, health, water and sanitation, food security, education, governance,peace and security, and environment and energy.
All G8 member states are in the top twelve countries with the highest gross domestic product, and the sum of their GDPs is about 60% of the world’s total. For many, this makes them a symbol of concentration of capital and global injustice, and they have often been accused of not doing enough for international development.

Outstanding news: we've welcomed our 350th member, with over $140 million pledged total! Thanks everyone!

Our members are united in their concern about the problem of world poverty and have each made our pledge to give at least 10% of their income to where they think it will do the most to eliminate poverty in the developing world.
Our members come from many different areas including the universities, religious organizations and politics, as well as many other professions and trades.
