Danish Finance Minister Joins Global Efforts to Provide Education in Emergencies

Danish Finance Minister Nicolai Wammen has taken on the role of Global Champion for Education Cannot Wait (ECW), demonstrating his commitment to ensuring that no child or young person is left behind when it comes to education. In this new position, Mr. Wammen will advocate for increased global investments in education during emergencies and protracted crises.

Mr. Wammen’s extensive political experience and recognition make him a valuable asset in mobilizing resources to support ECW’s strategic plan. The goal is to raise $1.5 billion over the next two years to provide education for 20 million crisis-affected children. Currently, more than 224 million children worldwide are impacted by armed conflict, displacement, climate change, and other crises, denying them access to education.

Education Under Attack in Gaza: Joint Statement by Inger Ashing, Chief Executive, Save the Children International, Yasmine Sherif, Executive Director, Education Cannot Wait and Jan Egeland, Secretary General, Norwegian Refugee Council

Children in Gaza have consistently expressed that going back to school is one of their top priorities. It provides them with a sense of normalcy, opportunities to play with friends and to continue to develop skills and knowledge for their futures.

Maher*, a father in Gaza says "A few days ago, one of my children told me, 'I want to eat healthy food. I really want to go to school and live my old, normal life. And I want to play.'
