Education Cannot Wait – Case for Investment

A growing number of conflicts, natural disasters and other crises means that 75 million school-age children and youth, especially girls, are in desperate need of educational support.

Their Vision: To create a world where no child or young person will have her or his education interrupted because of an emergency or crisis

The Issue: When conflict or crisis erupts, the educational needs of children and youth are often the last consideration – an afterthought following food, water, shelter and protection.

The Solution: A collaborative, international solution is needed, a solution that will deliver quality education to all children and youth even in the toughest of circumstances. Education Cannot Wait: A Fund for Education in Emergencies is part of the solution.
