As the United Nations global, billion-dollar fund for education in emergencies and protracted crises, Education Cannot Wait (ECW) supports and protects holistic learning outcomes – so no girl or boy is left behind.
Where We Work
ECW funds are invested in countries and contexts affected by emergencies and protracted crises – including armed conflicts, forced displacement, climate change-induced disasters and epidemics.
ECW financial investments support country-level implementation through two financing windows: Multi-Year Resilience Programme (MYRP) and First Emergency Response (FER). ECW also has a third, smaller funding stream to support global goods called the Acceleration Facility (AF).
