JOIN THE YOUTH/STUDENT-LED SUB-GROUP!
75 million school-aged children and young people living in, or fleeing from, emergencies are in desperate need of educational support, either in danger of, or already missing out on their education. Communities highlight the importance of education during times of crises, yet education appeals receive less than 2% of humanitarian funding. Education Cannot Wait (ECW) is the only global multilateral fund dedicated to education in emergencies and protracted crises. The fund aims to reach all crisis-affected children and youth with safe, free and quality education by 2030.
Education Cannot Wait is the first and only global multilateral fund to invite young people to participate directly in its decision-making processes.
Organisations led by and representing children and young people are now invited to join a ‘sub-group’, which will be represented by a youth/student-led organisation elected to sit on highest governance bodies of Education Cannot Wait. This means that young people themselves will have a direct say in the way that ECW operates, including decisions about where funding goes and the policies that ECW sets.
