Girls in Ethiopia.
Get to know the inspiring stories of the girls and boys at the heart of ECW results!
 
ECW’s investments are reaching millions of crisis-affected girls and boys with safe, inclusive quality education. We thank our grantees across the world whose dedicated work in crisis-affected communities is empowering children and adolescents. We are particularly grateful to the girls and boys, parents, teachers and communities supported by ECW-funded programmes who have accepted to share their incredible stories of hope and perseverance.
