Every day thousands of children have their education destroyed through deliberate attack; sexual exploitation, murder, kidnapping, military occupation. Education Above All is trying to stop this, but it needs the attention of world leaders, who don’t see the issue as a top priority. Across The Pond told the story of a single boy on his journey from school child to child soldier, and asked, “If education is destroyed, what fills the void?” The film was played by the UN Secretary General at the UN’s first ever Day to Protect Education from Attack event.
