Today’s #GlobalChalkCampaign photo was taken in a leadership course at Montana State University this past spring. Stewart’s answer reads, “The fate of the world rests with our children.” And we agree!

Every child deserves the right to education in order to better change the world we live in. And we’d still love to hear from you! Send in your answers to the Global Chalk Campaign, and tell us why education should be a right for every child in the world.

Today’s #GlobalChalkCampaign photo was taken at a CAI - supported school in Northern Pakistan. “Education is [the] basic right of every child,” his response reads. And we agree! Every child deserves access to education, regardless of their religion, country, gender, or ethnic identity. 

What do you think? Why should education be a right for every child in the world?

Today’s #GlobalChalkCampaign photo is of Molly, a fourteen-year-old student at Bozeman High School. Molly won the Montana State University’s Writer’s Voice Competition this summer. The competition is in junction with the MSU Convocation book, I am Malala. Molly wrote a beautiful poem titled “Seed,” inspired by the book (shown below). Both her Global Chalk Campaign photo and poem speak to the importance of global education. 

Great work, Molly!
SEED

By Molly Taylor
In the beginningI had no voiceI was simply a dandelion seedFloating on the breeze of others’ actionsBut the shot firedProved to send me on my own pathFollowing my own actionsSpeaking my own wordsBecause the purpose of a seed is to spread.

SEED

By Molly Taylor

In the beginning
I had no voice
I was simply a dandelion seed
Floating on the breeze of others’ actions
But the shot fired
Proved to send me on my own path
Following my own actions
Speaking my own words
Because the purpose of a seed is to spread.
