Statement of the Education Cannot Wait Director Welcoming the International Finance Facility for Education

Available languages:

Today, an estimated 75 million children and youth are caught up in emergencies, crisis and conflict. Education cannot wait is dedicated to mobilizing the resources and catalyzing the collective efforts from a wide range of aid actors to meet their most urgent immediate needs and lay the ground to ensure they have access to quality education throughout the crisis recovery cycle.

Some day, these millions of children will return home or need to rebuild their communities. In many countries across the world, there simply is not the finance necessary to bridge the gaps and invest what is needed in people today, to promote peace, growth and development tomorrow. Education Cannot Wait welcomes the International Finance Facility for Education and looks forward to joining forces in unleashing the financial resources required to achieve SDG4 for the for the future of humanity.
