Transforming the Landscape of Global Education

Education Cannot Wait (ECW) is the global fund for education in emergencies and protracted crises. We support and protect holistic learning outcomes – so no one is left behind.

ECW works through the multilateral system to both increase the speed of responses in crises and connect immediate relief and longer-term interventions through multi-year programming. ECW works in close partnership with governments, public and private donors, UN agencies, civil society organizations, and other humanitarian and development aid actors to increase efficiencies and end siloed responses.

Join the Protect Education in Emergencies Now! Campaign

Education helps to shape children's minds and hearts, changing social norms and attitudes. Gender-responsive frameworks must ensure girls are empowered to think independently, to speak out, and to be strong and free.
