What a great thing to be able to say, and much more actually do!
If we want a future for this world, which we seem to think is ours, nothing is more essential to our future than a quality education for our children, all children. We are a long way from there, and our current trajectory for a sustainable Earth is desperately off target.
This pledge is the least we can do! Thank you Suchith for prompting this in us.
