Education should be the right of all children, no matter who they are or where they are from. Yet millions of children around the world are being denied the basic education that would give them a fair start in life.
Right now, with over one billion children impacted by ongoing school closures due to COVID-19, we're focusing on keeping children safe, ensuring they don't get left behind, and supporting them as some prepare to return to the classroom.
We’re committed to leaving no child behind. That’s why our projects focus on ensuring that those children who are most at risk of missing out – including girls, those with disabilities, refugees, and those living in disaster- or conflict-affected areas – are able to benefit from a quality education.
We focus on early childhood education (ECE) and basic literacy and numeracy skills, laying the foundations for children to have a brighter future. By investing in children at this crucial time in their development, our programmes build resilience for later in life.
