Stronger Together: Education in Emergencies & Protracted Crises
75 million school-aged children and youth 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. The right to education is most at risk during emergencies but it is also the exact time when it is needed the most.
On August 12, 2020, Devex and Education Cannot Wait are hosting a dynamic online event to engage key stakeholders and generate a global conversation showcasing challenges and solutions to deliver a more collaborative and rapid response to the educational needs of children and youth affected by crises, especially.
The event will also include the official launch of Education Cannot Wait’s annual report, highlighting important results and lessons learned on how to advance education for the most vulnerable. Together with key experts and high-level stakeholders, we’ll shine a light on the important link between education and peace and development, and showcase solutions to boost access to education for children and adolescents living in crisis-affected countries.
