EDUCATION IN EMERGENCIES

Copy of 20220124_144218_edited.jpg

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.

Alongside disruption to their education, refugee and internally displaced children are extremely vulnerable to abuse and violence, especially if they are forced to flee  on their own, unaccompanied by their parents or caregivers. They are also at heightened risk of trafficking, forced into child labour and early marriage, sexual exploitation.

The 100 Million campaign supports children, young people and refugees themselves to have an equal role in refugee-focused international bodies and movements such as Education Cannot Wait (ECW) and to be leading advocates of important campaigns such as the global call for Education in Emergencies financing ahead of the Transforming Education Summit in 2022.

TAKE ACTION

Education Cannot Wait, the world's only multilateral fund dedicated to education in emergencies and protracted crises, established a Youth- and Student-led subgroup within its Civil Society Organisation Constituency in 2020. This means young people, students, and their representative organisations now have an equal seat at the decision-making table of ECW.

130 youth- and student-led organisations in over 40 countries are now members of the subgroup, from global student unions to national networks of youth activists and refugee-led groups operating in settlements across the world.
