Contribute to UNESCO in this crisis

© UNESCO/Akash

The United States Government is withholding its contributions to UNESCO as the result of a decades old provision of the law. That means about one-quarter of the funding for the 1012-2013 project that was just approved will not be available. 

UNESCO's mission is to promote a new humanism in the defense of peace. It seeks to promote international understanding. Its tools are directed towards education, the promotion of science, culture and communications.

UNESCO has created a new site to accept public donations in this financial crisis. 

Donations can be made online at:

Dear Webmaster,

I am writing from UNESCO's Education for All Global Monitoring Report.

We noticed you are using one of our photos commissioned for the EFA GMR 2011 on this page:, that the photo has been altered and that it is not credited. This could lead to legal issues with the photographer, with whom we have a very extensive contract.

You are welcome to use the original photo providing you remove all alterations to it, link back to, and add the following credit: © UNESCO/Akash.

Please confirm receipt of this email.

Best regards,

Madeleine Barry
Production Coordinator ∙ EFA Global Monitoring Report ∙ UNESCO
