Yesterday the Twestival Global 2010 took place. People in more than 175 cities around the world came together to rally around the important cause of Education by hosting local events. This year’s focus was on education and the 72 million children worldwide who don’t have the opportunity to go to school. The Twestival Global team selected Concern Worldwide to be the recipient because of their comprehensive and well respected approach to education.
