To reach its goal, ECW brings together a wide range of actors – from the humanitarian and development sectors, governments, donors, and private and philanthropic sectors – to collaborate over multiple years and based on their comparative advantage towards achieving collective education outcomes. This new way of working is at the heart of ECW’s added value.
The Fund’s flexible investment modalities are geared to support a rapid response to urgent education needs in sudden onset emergencies and escalating crises, whilst bridging the divide between humanitarian interventions and long-term development assistance to education in protracted crises. The Fund also supports the collection and analysis of evidence to inform best practices, scale up innovations and turn investments into concrete public goods.

ECW builds on relevant networks and advocacy platforms to generate stronger solidarity, political commitments and policy change for education in emergencies and protracted crises. As a global movement, ECW advocates for stakeholders to uphold the obligations spelled out in the United Nations Resolution on the Right to Education in Emergencies and to translate these commitments into additional financing to support the achievement of its overarching goal.
ECW continuously strives to strengthen and expand engagement with donors, and build new partnerships with the private and philanthropic sectors while pursuing innovative financing, to fill the funding gap for the education in emergencies and protracted crises sector.
