GPE was launched in 2002 and today it is working in 61 developing countries to ensure that every child receives a quality basic education. GPE prioritizes the poorest, most vulnerable and those living in fragile and conflict-affected countries. The organization has allocated $4.4 billion in grants since 2003. Its key results show that about 69% of girls in GPE partner countries have finished primary school in 2013 compared to 56% in 2002. With GPA assistance, the primary completion rate has gone up to 72% from 63% in 2002. In the last year, on December 21, 2015, as part of the second civic education campaign, Nesmy Manigat, the then Minister of National Education, had launched a national level music and literary contest "Nou tout sanble, menm lè nou diferan" in collaboration with the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Civic Action. On Thursday, February 18th, on his invitation, a dozen of former education ministers were present at the Ministry Forum. The Minister Manigat explained them how the exchange of ideas and expertise could contribute and improve the quality of education given to every section of the society.
