Summary:

  • UN Secretary-General António Guterres says that no one is more aware of this than Education Cannot Wait, which uses education as a lifeline for children in 40 countries going through crises.

  • ECW’s High-Level Financing Conference can allow all kids to receive a high-quality education with support.

  • This plan will raise an extra $1.5 billion to help 20 million children and teens caught in some of the worst humanitarian crises in history.

  • The goal of the Fund is to reach 20 million girls and boys over the next four years.

  • Since its start in 2016, Education Cannot Wait has helped nearly 7 million kids and teens with all their school needs.

A massive, harmful, and unprecedented global education catastrophe is sweeping the globe. Children are dropping out of school because of wars, long-lasting conflicts, dramatic climate change, hunger, COVID-19, and the economy.

In 2016, there were reportedly 75 million children who needed assistance with their education. The amount has now increased to 222 million. As their way of life crumbles around them, students from Afghanistan, Moldova, Colombia, Libya, Iraq, Somalia, and South Sudan see education as their only remaining option.

222 million girls and boys are having their dreams crushed by wars, forced migration, and natural disasters. UN Secretary-General António Guterres says that no one is more aware of this than Education Cannot Wait, which uses education as a lifeline for children in 40 countries going through crises.
